To pre­vent the chains of infec­tion from spread­ing, it is very impor­tant that you seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing ear­ly, even if you have only very mild symptoms!

We can all impact the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion through our own actions and increase the like­li­hood that we do not infect our loved ones or oth­er peo­ple we meet. There is still some dis­tance to go before every­one has been giv­en the vac­cine, so keep going just a lit­tle while yet!

Stop the coro­n­avirus from spreading:

  • Wash your hands or use a hand sanitizer often
  • Cough into your sleeve or into a handkerchief
  • Keep a distance to other people - remember a safe distance of 2 metres!
  • Use a mask
  • If you have symptoms, stay at home and seek out coronavirus testing at an early stage and even if you only have mild symptoms
  • Install and use the Koronavilkku coronavirus app
  • Get vaccinated when it is your turn.
