Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 17th 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. 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 in the process of being lift­ed at Soite’s units. The cen­tral hos­pi­tal and gen­er­al med­ical depart­ments in Kokko­la, Tunkkari och Kan­nus will instead apply restric­tions on vis­it­ing. The hos­pi­tal and gen­er­al med­ical depart­ments will allow 1–2 vis­i­tors (who show no symp­toms at all) at a time. It is impor­tant to remem­ber that seri­ous­ly ill patients are being treat­ed on the wards. Vis­i­tors have to use sur­gi­cal masks that cov­er the nose and mouth and must fol­low the coro­na relat­ed instruc­tions for hygiene. The depart­ments have reserved sur­gi­cal masks that will be giv­en out to vis­i­tors. The restric­tions on vis­it­ing will be spec­i­fied as need­ed in accor­dance with nation­al guidelines. 

No changes were made in the list of changes in the open­ing hours and oth­er changes in Soite.
