Infor­ma­tion on the 10th of May 2021 on the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture in Soite regard­ing the coronavirus

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

Six new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The cas­es are part of the same exten­sive chain of infec­tions we have informed about dur­ing the last few days and which start­ed at a first of May brunch. The chain of infec­tions has led to sev­er­al fur­ther infec­tions and Soite’s per­son­nel is doing its best to inves­ti­gate the fur­ther chains of infec­tion and to con­tact trace those who have been exposed to the coro­n­avirus. A total of 20 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in rela­tion to this chain.

All pos­si­ble coro­n­avirus mass expo­sure places will be list­ed in the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture for Soite’s area. We ask those who vis­it­ed these places to observe them­selves for any symp­toms and quick­ly book an appoint­ment for coro­n­avirus test­ing even if they have only mild symptoms.

The wors­ened coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion has also con­gest­ed Soite’s coro­n­avirus helpline and appoint­ment book­ing num­ber. We rec­om­mend that the elec­tron­ic Omaolo ser­vice Omaolo ser­vice is used for coro­n­avirus symp­tom check­ing and for book­ing an appoint­ment to a coro­n­avirus test. In oth­er words, you can book an appoint­ment via Omaolo to Soite’s coro­n­avirus test­ing if the symp­tom check­er rec­om­mends a test.

As a safe­ty mea­sure, Soite has arranged an oppor­tu­ni­ty for stu­dents at Kokko­la voca­tion­al school to eas­i­ly seek out coro­n­avirus testing.
