Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 18th 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 guide­lines for vis­its at enhanced round-the-clock care units remain in their cur­rent form. We try to make it pos­si­ble for all res­i­dents and their loved ones to meet safe­ly under cur­rent con­di­tions. We rec­om­mend that vis­its main­ly are arranged out­doors. If vis­its can­not be arranged out­doors due to the resident’s con­di­tion, we will attempt to arrange for the vis­it indoors by imple­ment­ing spe­cial arrange­ments and coro­na safe­ty mea­sures. The per­son­nel at the care home units will give the res­i­dents’ vis­i­tors more detailed guid­ance for the visits.

At the cen­tral hos­pi­tal and at the gen­er­al med­ical depart­ments in Kokko­la, Tunkkari and Kan­nus (i.e. the health cen­tre inpa­tient wards) the vis­i­tor ban has been replaced by restric­tions on vis­it­ing, as we informed yesterday.

From now on, we will only inform about the coro­na sit­u­a­tion as need­ed, if the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture changes , i.e. reg­u­lar updates will no longer be published.
