Soite remains on the coro­n­avirus base lev­el — one new coro­n­avirus case has been confirmed

Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s region­al COVID-19 author­i­ty task group gath­ered on Wednes­day 24th of March 2021 to eval­u­ate the region­al sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture as well as the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions. Soite’s area remains at the coro­n­avirus base lev­el. The region­al rec­om­men­da­tions remain in effect until the 18th of April 2021. One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area.

Last week (week 11) a total of 6 new coro­n­avirus infec­tions were con­firmed in Soite’s area. 29 peo­ple were quar­an­tined. The per­cent­age of pos­i­tive sam­ples was 0.4 % (num­ber of tests was cir­ca 1500) The inci­dence of infec­tions dur­ing the last 14 days is 14/100,000 cit­i­zens. No patients are cur­rent­ly being treat­ed at the Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal because of COVID-19. All the recent sources of infec­tion have been traced to a 100%.

The coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions have pro­gressed well. Accord­ing to the infor­ma­tion avail­able as of 22nd of March 2021, the per­cent­age of per­sons over the age of 80 who have received their first vac­cine dose is 90%. Of per­sons aged 75 to 79 years, 91% have received their first vac­cine dose. Vac­ci­na­tions of 70–74-year-olds have also begun and in this group, 28% have received their first vac­cine dose. The vac­ci­na­tion cov­er­age for risk group 1 is about 45%. A total of 21.7% of the res­i­dents in Soite’s area who have a right to coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion have received their first dose.

The coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion in the area has remained calm. There­fore, cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tions will remain unchanged and Soite con­tin­ues at the coro­n­avirus base lev­el. Cur­rent region­al rec­om­men­da­tions remain in effect until the 18th of April 2021. Main­tain­ing a calm coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion requires every pos­si­ble safe­ty mea­sure and that every­one behaves respon­si­bly in their every­day life. The most impor­tant cur­rent region­al rec­om­men­da­tions are:

  • max 10 participants at private gatherings
  • indoor hobby groups for adults have been paused
  • hobby groups for children and young persons (0-20 years old) allowed as long as there are fewer than 20 participants
  • swimming halls, libraries and other public places are open with special arrangements
  • the expanded recommendation regarding the use of protective masks also applies to students in grades 7 to 9 and at upper secondary institutes (vocational training and upper secondary school)
