When should you go to a coro­n­avirus test?

If you have even just mild symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus, stay at home and con­tact us elec­tron­i­cal­ly or by phone! Do not come to Soite’s unit with­out con­tact­ing us first.

Unvac­ci­nat­ed per­sons should go to a coro­n­avirus test with­out delay even if they only have very mild symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus. Those who have received two dos­es of the vac­cine are test­ed if the symp­toms are severe, if the per­son has been sig­nif­i­cant­ly exposed to the virus or if the per­son works in the health and social care sec­tor. Soite fol­lows the Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Welfare’s (THL) nation­al guide­lines (in Finnish) for coro­n­avirus test­ing. How­ev­er, coro­n­avirus test­ing will still be avail­able for any­one with symp­toms indica­tive of the coro­n­avirus dis­ease or who are sus­pect­ed of hav­ing a coro­n­avirus infection.

Chil­dren no longer have to be test­ed because of a mild cold. Tests are rec­om­mend­ed for per­sons under the age of 12 if they have symp­toms and it has been con­firmed that they have been exposed to coro­n­avirus infec­tion, and if there are per­sons in the fam­i­ly over 16 years of age who do not have full vac­cine pro­tec­tion. A child may also be referred to a coro­n­avirus test based on a doc­tor’s assess­ment.

You can con­tact us elec­tron­i­cal­ly by using the coro­n­avirus symp­tom check­er in the Omaolo ser­vice. If your symp­toms require it, your con­tact infor­ma­tion can be con­veyed to Soite or you can book a time your­self to the dri­ve-in test­ing site via the Omaolo ser­vice. The link for mak­ing a book­ing is offered after the symp­tom check-up has been filled in, if your symp­toms require a coro­n­avirus test.
