Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 7th 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.

In accor­dance with nation­al guide­lines, vis­its to Soite’s wards and assist­ed liv­ing facil­i­ties with 24-hour care are still pro­hib­it­ed. We in Soite wish to help friends and rel­a­tives to meet safe­ly with their rel­a­tives who live in assist­ed liv­ing facil­i­ties. We are explor­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties to arrange safe meet­ings.  We will inform our clients’ rel­a­tives about this when we have deter­mined how meet­ings will be arranged and when nec­es­sary arrange­ments have been made.

Until safe meet­ings can be arranged, we encour­age rel­a­tives to keep in touch with their rel­a­tives who live in assist­ed liv­ing facil­i­ties by phone or dif­fer­ent elec­tron­ic ser­vices. Not all elder­ly and dis­abled per­sons have had access to ade­quate dig­i­tal devices in order to keep in touch with their rel­a­tives. We have also received dona­tions for this pur­pose — a warm thank you for that! We will glad­ly receive dona­tions even hence­forth for elder­ly and dis­abled per­sons who live in Soite’s units. Even old­er tablets are suit­able and will be used active­ly when our clients com­mu­ni­cate with their rel­a­tives. Soite has a par­tic­u­lar­ly great need of these devices in this sit­u­a­tion. Please con­tact by e‑mail about dona­tions:

Soite has sent the munic­i­pal edu­ca­tion­al admin­is­tra­tions advice on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion for when schools and insti­tu­tions open. We will pub­lish advice that is more detailed for par­ents in the near future. This advice will be pub­lished on Soite’s website.

The list on changes in the open­ing hours and oth­er changes in Soite was changed when it comes to ser­vices for the dis­abled. The list was changed as follows:

  • Work and day activities are closed until 31.5. They are partly open from 1.6. with special arrangements.
  • Asuva’s unit is closed until 13.5 - we wait for Luovi’s decision about how it will open.

The changes are med on the list on changes in open­ing hours and oth­er changes in Soite.
