Soite con­tin­ues in the com­mu­ni­ty trans­mis­sion phase when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic — no new coro­n­avirus cases

The Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia region­al COVID-19 group of author­i­ties had a meet­ing on Wednes­day 2nd of June 2021 in order to assess the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture and the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions. The group of author­i­ties stat­ed that Soite’s area con­tin­ues in the com­mu­ni­ty trans­mis­sion phase of the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic and a trans­fer to the accel­er­a­tion phase is con­sid­ered at the group’s next, extra meet­ing already on 7th of June 2021. The region­al rec­om­men­da­tions are not changed. No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area in recent days.

The num­ber of new coro­n­avirus cas­es has quick­ly begun to decrease, but the deci­sion on a trans­fer to the low­er phase of the epi­dem­ic, the accel­er­a­tion phase must be based on a longer peri­od. The group of author­i­ties there­fore decid­ed that the area will con­tin­ue in the com­mu­ni­ty trans­mis­sion phase of the coro­n­avirus epidemic.

66 coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area in the past 14 days and the inci­dence is cur­rent­ly 86/100 000 cit­i­zens in the area. A major­i­ty of the new coro­n­avirus cas­es are con­firmed in per­sons who are already in quar­an­tine. 1.1% of the coro­n­avirus tests are pos­i­tive. Two per­sons who have been infect­ed with the coro­n­avirus are cared for at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­n­ian Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal. Approx­i­mate­ly 130 per­sons are in quarantine.

The approach­ing fes­tive sea­son and grad­u­a­tion par­ties may mean a risk of ris­ing coro­n­avirus cas­es. The rec­om­men­da­tions issued by the region­al health author­i­ties con­cern­ing pri­vate events must be fol­lowed when par­ties are arranged. In addi­tion to this, the same prin­ci­ples should be kept in mind as at oth­er times dur­ing the epi­dem­ic. The most impor­tant thing is to exer­cise good hand and cough­ing hygiene, to keep safe dis­tances, to use a face mask when need­ed and to make sure the Koron­av­ilkku coro­n­avirus app is func­tion­ing on the phone. One should seek out test­ing if one has even just mild symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus. If one has even just mild symp­toms, one should not go to par­ties and one should stay at home. More tips on how to arrange par­ties safe­ly can be found in the mes­sage by the Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare THL.

In accor­dance with the deci­sion by the author­i­ty task group, Soite’s area remains in the com­mu­ni­ty trans­mis­sion phase of the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic. The region­al rec­om­men­da­tions are not changed. Link: all the region­al reg­u­la­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic with­in Soite’s area.

Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s region­al COVID-19 author­i­ty task group has an extra meet­ing on Mon­day 7th of June 2021 to eval­u­ate the sit­u­a­tion and to con­sid­er a trans­fer to the accel­er­a­tion phase of the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic. At the same time, the pos­si­bil­i­ty of light­en­ing the region­al restric­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions is considered.

The sit­u­a­tion today

We ask all who have even just mild symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus to seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing. One should not move out­side the home even if one only has mild symptoms!
