Pos­si­ble expo­sure sit­u­a­tions relat­ed to the Her­mes coro­n­avirus infection

Kokkola’s ice hock­ey team Her­mes was exposed to the coro­n­avirus dur­ing an out-of-town game in East­ern Fin­land between Feb­ru­ary 12th and 13th 2021. The teams were placed in vol­un­tary quar­an­tine due to the pos­si­ble expo­sure and were urged to seek out test­ing. One of the play­ers gave a pos­i­tive test and there­fore the entire team was placed in quar­an­tine in accor­dance with the Com­mu­ni­ca­ble Dis­eases Act.

The infec­tion has pos­si­bly caused coro­n­avirus expo­sure in the fol­low­ing places:

  • Sunday 14th of February 2021 between 7 pm and 8 pm: the Friends & Brgrs restaurant in Pietarsaari
  • Monday 15th of February 2021 between 11 am and 12 noon: the cafeteria at Centria University of Applied Sciences in Kokkola

There were no close con­tacts dur­ing the meals, but expo­sure to the virus is still possible.

We ask those who have vis­it­ed the places men­tioned above to observe their symp­toms and to seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing early.
