Soite remains at the coro­n­avirus base lev­el – two new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area

Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s region­al COVID-19 author­i­ty task group gath­ered on Wednes­day 17th of Feb­ru­ary 2021 to eval­u­ate the region­al sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture as well as the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions. Soite remains at the coro­n­avirus base lev­el and cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tions remain in effect until 15th of March 2021. Two new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area.

Last week, a total of six new coro­n­avirus infec­tions relat­ed to the Skelleft­eå chain of infec­tion were con­firmed in Soite’s area. Over the past 14 days, a total of 15 coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite and the inci­dence of infec­tions dur­ing the last 14 days is cur­rent­ly 19 /100 000 citizens

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.

Over­all, the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion in Soite’s area is still calm. Those who are in quar­an­tine will be test­ed once more before being released from quar­an­tine. No patients with COVID-19 are cur­rent­ly being treat­ed at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal. Res­i­dents at around-the-clock care and treat­ment units have been vac­ci­nat­ed and mass vac­ci­na­tions of per­sons over the age of 80 have begun.

Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s COVID-19 author­i­ty task group issued guide­lines that Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia will remain at the coro­n­avirus base lev­el, since the sit­u­a­tions have been under con­trol and trace­able. It was decid­ed that cur­rent coro­n­avirus region­al rec­om­men­da­tions will be con­tin­ued until 15th of March 2021.

The direc­tive from the Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency (Alue­hallintovi­ras­to) regard­ing a max­i­mum of 20 par­tic­i­pants at pub­lic events and gath­er­ings, both indoors and out­doors, is in effect until 1st of March 2021. The Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency will give a new direc­tive regard­ing the restric­tions on par­tic­i­pants dur­ing next week.  The Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency strong­ly rec­om­mends avoid­ing all phys­i­cal gath­er­ings if one does not have to orga­nize them. With­in Soite’s area, the region­al author­i­ty group still rec­om­mends that no pri­vate gath­er­ings with more than 10 par­tic­i­pants should be arranged.

Cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic with­in Soite’s area are list­ed on Soite’s coro­na web­site: https://korona.soite.fi/en/recommendations/
