Soite con­tin­ues on the base lev­el when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic — no new cases

The Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia region­al COVID-19 group of author­i­ties had a meet­ing on Wednes­day the 21st of April 2021 in order to assess the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture and the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions. Soite’s area con­tin­ues to be on the base lev­el when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic. The region­al rec­om­men­da­tions are in effect until the 30th of April 2021. No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area.

Dur­ing last week (week 15), two pos­i­tive coro­n­avirus cas­es were con­firmed in Soite’s area. The share of pos­i­tive test results was 0.2% (of 1300 tests). The inci­dence is 6.5/100 000 res­i­dents dur­ing 14 days. No patients are cared for at the hos­pi­tal because of COVID-19. All recent cas­es have been traced to 100%.

The epi­demi­o­log­i­cal sit­u­a­tion has con­tin­ued to improve in the area and Soite con­tin­ues on a calm base lev­el. The cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tions are still in effect until the 30th of April 2021. The reg­u­la­tion by The Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency on restrict­ing the num­ber of par­tic­i­pants in pub­lic events and pub­lic gath­er­ings both indoors and out­doors to 20 per­sons is also in effect through the 30th of April 2021. The group of author­i­ties rec­om­mends that no gath­er­ings of over 10 per­sons are orga­nized in the area.

The group of author­i­ties also dis­cussed pos­si­bly eas­ing the coro­n­avirus rec­om­men­da­tions and restric­tions, as the epi­demi­o­log­i­cal sit­u­a­tion is expect­ed to improve in the whole coun­try. The need to pos­si­bly change the rec­om­men­da­tions is dis­cussed in more detail dur­ing the fol­low­ing meeting.

The First of May should be planned in accor­dance with the cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tions. The group of author­i­ties also not­ed that the cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tions make it pos­si­ble to orga­nize hob­bies for adults in groups out­doors with­in the restric­tions on gath­er­ings that The Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency has set (20 per­sons). The cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tion on putting hob­bies on hold only applies to indoor hob­bies for adults in groups.

Soite’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives expressed a con­cern over the fact that vac­ci­na­tions of per­son­nel in social and health care has been delayed and that this is a risk when it comes to the capac­i­ty of social and health services.

The region­al COVID-19 group of author­i­ties has its next meet­ing on the 28th of April 2021. If need­ed, the group may have a meet­ing earlier.
