Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 29th 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 con­firmed today in Soite’s area. No coro­n­avirus patients are cared for on wards. Over­all, 24 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 pos­si­bil­i­ties for a sup­port per­son to take part in vis­its with the preg­nant woman are expand­ed in Soite. A symp­tom-free sup­port per­son who lives in the area of the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal may, start­ing on the 1st of June 2020, take part in the care after the deliv­ery. A symp­tom-free per­son may also be present at a planned cesare­an section.

The sup­port per­son may, for the time being, not be present when out­pa­tient care is giv­en (ultra­sound screen­ing, vis­its at the mater­ni­ty clin­ic, emer­gency vis­its or check-ups if the baby is over­due). The sup­port per­son may also not be present when labour is induced and when the patient is cared for on a ward for oth­er rea­sons before the delivery.

The restric­tions are tough­ened again if need­ed, if the num­ber of coro­n­avirus cas­es increas­es in the area of the mater­ni­ty hospital.

The fol­low­ing updates were made on the list on changes in open­ing hours and oth­er changes in Soite:

The above-men­tioned changes when it comes to sup­port per­sons being present at deliveries.

In psy­chi­a­try for adults, planned client work is car­ried out by phone and part­ly as vis­its to the receptions.

  • In housing and support services for clients in mental health rehabilitation, the planned client visits are carried out through meetings and by phone.
  • Day and work activities for clients in mental health rehabilitation start on the 1st of June 2020 with special arrangements.

From now on, we will inform on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on week­ends and on hol­i­days only if the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture changes sig­nif­i­cant­ly. We will, for exam­ple, not inform about new coro­n­avirus cas­es that have been con­firmed dur­ing the week­end until after the week­end, unless the results are anom­alous in some way or cause a par­tic­u­lar risk.
