Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 20th of May 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.

The sit­u­a­tion is unchanged: No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been found today in Soite’s area. No coro­n­avirus patients are cared for on wards. Over­all, 23 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 when a per­son has symp­toms of the coronavirus.

The Min­istry of Social Affairs and Health and The Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare (THL) have updat­ed the coro­n­avirus instruc­tions for per­sons over the age of 70. Soite encour­ages the senior cit­i­zens in the area and their friends and rel­a­tives to read the instruc­tions and to act correspondingly.

Links to THL’s instructions:

”Ikään­tyneen on syytä vält­tää koron­avirus­tar­tun­taa – hyv­in­voin­ti­in ja toim­intakykyyn kan­nat­taa kiin­nit­tää huomio­ta” (It is rec­om­mend­ed that the senior cit­i­zens try to avoid a coro­n­avirus infec­tion — it is also rec­om­mend­ed that they take care of their well­be­ing and func­tion­al capacity)

”Ikään­tyneet – ohjei­ta yli 70-vuo­ti­aille” (Senior cit­i­zens — instruc­tions for per­sons over the age of 70)

Updat­ed instruc­tions for every­day life for per­sons over the age of 70 dur­ing the coro­n­avirus epidemic:

  • Be in contact with your friends and relatives in a safe way: it is preferable to meet them outside, maintain a safe distance
  • Take care of your health: be outside, exercise, eat a variety of foods and eat regularly.
  • See to the treatment of possible chronic diseases; do not cancel doctor’s appointments unnecessarily.

It is still of utmost impor­tance to keep a safe dis­tance of about 2 meters and to main­tain a good hand hygiene.

The list on changes in the open­ing hours and oth­er changes in Soite due to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic was not changed.

We inform about the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on pub­lic hol­i­days and on week­ends only if the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture changes.
