It is very impor­tant that you seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing ear­ly, even if you have only mild symp­toms, so that the chains of infec­tion do not begin to spread! 

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 have only very mild symptoms 
  • Install and use the Koronavilkku coronavirus app 
  • When it is your turn, take the coronavirus vaccine.
