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 spread of the coronavirus:
- Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently
- Cough in your sleeve or in a tissue
- Keep a distance to other people
- Use a mask
- If you have symptoms, stay at home and seek out coronavirus testing early and even if you only have mild symptoms
- Install and use the Koronavilkku coronavirus app
- When it’s your turn, take the coronavirus vaccine.
