Rec­om­men­da­tions for the Christ­mas period

It is for example recommended that relatives are visited only if necessary. If one plans to visit other than the closest persons during the Christmas period, and especially if one visits elderly persons or persons who otherwise belong to an at-risk group, the safety of the meeting can be improved in many ways. 

If you visit a close person who lives in a nursing home or a unit for supported housing and belongs to an at-risk group, it is important to follow the instructions the personnel gives carefully.  

One can reduce the risk of getting infected oneself by avoiding social contacts before the holidays. 

It is of utmost importance to remember the same principles during the holidays as otherwise during the coronavirus epidemic. The most important thing is to practice good hand and coughing hygiene and to try to maintain social distancing. One can also use face masks.

Test­ing dur­ing the Christ­mas period

It is also important to seek out testing even during the holidays if one has even mild symptoms that fit the coronavirus and otherwise to stay at home if one has symptoms.

It is possible to come for a coronavirus test even during Christmas. The coronavirus helpline 06 828 7499 is open on weekday holidays during weekend opening hours, i.e. is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (24 - 27.12, 31.12, 1.1.2021 and 6.1.2021). It is important to seek out coronavirus testing without delay even if one only has mild symptoms!
