Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group informs on the 19th of Novem­ber 2020

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has a meet­ing on Mon­days, Thurs­days and when need­ed and it updates the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture. The pre­pared­ness is in accor­dance with plan.

One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The infec­tion is con­nect­ed to the ear­li­er chain of infec­tions in the Kru­unupyy area. It has now been con­firmed that the oth­er infec­tion that we informed about yes­ter­day is also con­nect­ed to the chain in Kru­unupyy. The infec­tions start­ed to spread at a fam­i­ly event, which has now lead to 15 infections.

Over­all, 115 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have now been con­firmed in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia hos­pi­tal dis­trict dur­ing the whole pandemic.

The coro­n­avirus task group took a stand on pre-Christ­mas par­ties. Dur­ing the coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic, the rec­om­men­da­tion is that par­ties are held remote­ly, that rec­om­men­da­tions on masks are fol­lowed and that nec­es­sary pre­cau­tions are tak­en. For exam­ple com­pa­nies can uti­lize take-away and cater­ing ser­vices at restau­rants when orga­niz­ing events and cater­ing for their per­son­nel. On base lev­el, hygiene instruc­tions and instruc­tions on masks must be fol­lowed and unnec­es­sary close con­tact must be avoided.

Soite wish­es every­one a good pre-Christ­mas sea­son with the fol­low­ing advice:

  • Party only if you are healthy - stay at home if you have symptoms that fit the coronavirus
  • Limit the size of the group - the risk of spreading the coronavirus is significantly reduced in groups of under 10 people
  • Act in accordance with instructions - be sure to do social distancing, to practice good hygiene and to take other precautions.
  • Know your group - participant lists and assistance applications are helpful if tracing is necessary
  • Have fun - we all need joy and recreation!
