Soite con­tin­ues to dis­trib­ute face masks to low-income households

Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Joint Munic­i­pal Author­i­ty for Social and Health Ser­vices Soite will con­tin­ue to dis­trib­ute face masks to low-income cit­i­zens dur­ing weeks 40–41. The nation­al rec­om­men­da­tion is that cit­i­zens buy their own face masks. Free masks are intend­ed for low-income cit­i­zens who can­not afford masks themselves.

We dis­trib­ute pri­mar­i­ly fab­ric masks, four per per­son. Includ­ed with the masks will be instruc­tions for cor­rect use and wash­ing of the mask. The major­i­ty of the masks are reusable fab­ric masks that have been used by employ­ees in Soite’s units. After use, the fab­ric masks have been washed indus­tri­al­ly and then stored cor­rect­ly in storage. 

The dis­tri­b­u­tion of masks is con­fi­dence-based. No one who vis­its the dis­tri­b­u­tion points needs to prove they belong to a low-income house­hold or that they need free masks. Face masks will be hand­ed out only for per­son­al need and use.

When should I wear a face mask?

A rec­om­men­da­tion on the use of face masks

A face mask is one method for pre­vent­ing the spread of coro­n­avirus infec­tions. It is still of utmost impor­tance to main­tain a safe­ty dis­tance of 1–2 meters any­time this is pos­si­ble, to wash one’s hands, to cough into one’s elbow or into a dis­pos­able hand­ker­chief and to avoid touch­ing your face.
