Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 15th of June 2020

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has a dai­ly meet­ing and updates the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture. The sit­u­a­tion is still calm in Soite’s area and the prepa­ra­tions pro­ceed accord­ing to plan.

No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s hos­pi­tal dis­trict today or dur­ing the week­end. No coro­n­avirus patients are cared for on wards. Over­all, 31 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in Soite’s area. 

The sit­u­a­tion is calm at the infec­tion recep­tions and on the coro­n­avirus helpline. Coro­n­avirus tests are done with a low thresh­old on Soite’s coro­n­avirus recep­tions when a per­son has symp­toms of the coronavirus.

The ban on vis­i­tors is still being fur­ther lift­ed at Soite’s units. With­in the hand­i­cap ser­vices, the ban on vis­i­tors is has been lift­ed at lighter care home units such as at units for sup­port­ed liv­ing and assist­ed liv­ing facil­i­ties (except for at enhanced round-the-clock care units). 1–2 vis­i­tors at a time are allowed. Vis­i­tors have to be healthy and fol­low the coro­na relat­ed hygiene guide­lines. The care home per­son­nel will give vis­i­tors fur­ther guidance.

The task group also pre­scribed that the vis­i­tor ban at the cen­tral hospital’s depart­ment for neu­ro­log­i­cal reha­bil­i­ta­tion can be eased just as with­in the hand­i­cap ser­vices. At the reha­bil­i­ta­tion depart­ment, 1–2 vis­i­tors at a time are allowed, and they have to be healthy and fol­low the coro­na relat­ed hygiene guidelines.

Oth­er­wise, the vis­i­tor ban is still effec­tive at the cen­tral hospital’s depart­ments. Regard­ing its lift­ing, Soite awaits fur­ther instruc­tions regard­ing the excep­tion­al sit­u­a­tion in Fin­land dur­ing the near future.

The list of changes in open­ing hours in Soite due to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic was updat­ed on behalf of the hand­i­cap services.
