Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 5th 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, 17 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in Soite, and all chains of infec­tion have been traced in Soite’s area. 

The sit­u­a­tion is very calm on the coro­n­avirus clin­ic, in the infec­tion units and on the coro­n­avirus helpline. Coro­n­avirus tests are done with a low thresh­old when a per­son has symp­toms of the coronavirus.

The Finnish gov­ern­ment held a press con­fer­ence on the 4th of May 2020 about its new deci­sions on restric­tions, and Soite has now assessed how the nation­al guide­lines affects Soite and its ser­vices. In Soite, the new deci­sions only have an impact on school and stu­dent health care. Prepa­ra­tions are made for open­ing school and stu­dent health care, and the nurs­es begin to receive clients at schools again when the schools open. We informed ear­li­er about what to do about school­ing if a child or a par­ent belongs to an at-risk group.

The guide­lines from the Finnish gov­ern­ment do not lead to changes in vis­it­ing restric­tions. The vis­it­ing restric­tions still apply in Soite’s units and at the cen­tral hospital. 

The list on changes in the open­ing hours and oth­er changes in Soite was changed when it comes to vac­ci­na­tions dur­ing the pan­dem­ic — a sep­a­rate announce­ment is made about this.
