Infor­ma­tion on the 28th of June 2021 on the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture in Soite’s area when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epidemic

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area dur­ing the past week. The lat­est coro­n­avirus case was con­firmed on Tues­day the 8th of June 2021. The region­al inci­dence is cur­rent­ly 0/100 000 cit­i­zens in 14 days. One per­son who has been infect­ed with the coro­n­avirus is cared for at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hospital.

A few per­sons who have been trav­el­ling to Saint Peters­burg have been put into quar­an­tine because of expo­sure to the coro­n­avirus. Soite asks espe­cial­ly those who have been trav­el­ling in Rus­sia to not hes­i­tate seek­ing out coro­n­avirus test­ing. Every­one who has returned from Saint Peters­burg by bus must avoid con­tact with per­sons out­side of the fam­i­ly and seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing 72 hours after com­ing to the coun­try even if they have no symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus. Those who are or have been in con­tact with trav­ellers who have come by bus from Saint Peters­burg to Fin­land should not hes­i­tate seek­ing out coro­n­avirus testing.

THL also strong­ly rec­om­mends that all trav­ellers who return from Rus­sia to Fin­land seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing 72 hours after return­ing to Fin­land and avoid social con­tacts until the test results have come (THL’s mes­sage in Finnish).

Use of the FINENTRY ser­vice is rec­om­mend­ed to every­one who trav­els to Fin­land and to Finns who are return­ing to the coun­try. FINENTRY ( is a dig­i­tal ser­vice that is used on a brows­er. It makes trav­el­ling to Fin­land and coro­n­avirus test­ing in con­nec­tion with trav­el­ling to Fin­land eas­i­er dur­ing the coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic. The ser­vice is used in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia as well. In the FINENTRY ser­vice, you can for example:

  • book an appointment to a coronavirus test in Finland
  • receive instructions by text message on how to go to a test
  • receive results from a coronavirus test by text message
