Soite’s area is still on base lev­el: a strong rec­om­men­da­tion on face masks is in effect and unnec­es­sary trav­el to Vaasa hos­pi­tal dis­trict should be avoided

The group of region­al author­i­ties had a meet­ing before noon on the 14th of Octo­ber 2020. The group con­sists of Soite, the Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agen­cies, The Finnish insti­tute for health and wel­fare THL and the Cen­tre for Eco­nom­ic Devel­op­ment, Trans­port and the Envi­ron­ment. The group assessed the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture con­cern­ing the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia and stat­ed that Soite’s area is still on the base lev­el when it comes to the epi­dem­ic, despite an increased num­ber of cases.

In Soite’s area, the cri­te­ria for the accel­er­a­tion stage are met only when it comes to inci­dence. The inci­dence is cur­rent­ly 38/100 000 cit­i­zens. The share of pos­i­tive test results of all coro­n­avirus tests is, how­ev­er, still under 1 % and over 80% of the chains of infec­tions have been traced.

The group of region­al author­i­ties stat­ed that Soite’s rec­om­men­da­tion on a more wide­spread use of face masks is still in effect in the area. Soite strong­ly rec­om­mends wide­spread use of face masks in pub­lic spaces, stores and in oth­er places when run­ning errands out­side the home. Social dis­tanc­ing and a good hand and cough­ing hygiene should also be observed in all situations.

The group of author­i­ties also rec­om­mend­ed that unnec­es­sary trav­el to Vaasa hos­pi­tal dis­trict should cur­rent­ly be avoided.
