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.
