Soite is preparing for the Christmas period through personnel arrangements, in order to ensure the care of the citizens in the area and the patient safety if the coronavirus epidemic worsens in the area.
The coronavirus task group wishes to remind of the recommendation on parties during the Christmas period:
- The recommendation is that parties are held remotely, that recommendations on masks are followed and that necessary precautions are taken.
- It is recommended that the recommendation by The Finnish institute for health and welfare THL on parties during Christmas time is followed. According to the recommendation, we should not completely bypass social interaction, but should instead come up with safe alternatives to arrange parties.
- If one wishes to gather, it is recommended that the group consists of under ten persons and that people possibly participate remotely. Christmas meals can also be arranged in new ways. The Tax Administration has published its own bulletin about this for employers.
