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.
