Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group informs on the 21st of Jan­u­ary 2021

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.

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of Infection

One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The chain of infec­tion has been traced and those exposed have been placed in quarantine.

Fol­low­ing the coro­na rec­om­men­da­tions has a clear impact on the region­al coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion. Soite’s task group wants to thank all res­i­dents in the area for fol­low­ing the coro­n­avirus ínstruc­tions. Please keep fol­low­ing the instruc­tions! Do not leave your home if you get symp­toms of a coro­n­avirus infec­tion and go take a coro­n­avirus test as soon as pos­si­ble even if you get only mild symp­toms. We all can impact the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion through our own actions and increase the like­li­hood that we do not infect our loved ones or oth­er peo­ple we meet.  There is still some dis­tance to go before every­one has been giv­en the vac­cine, so keep going just a lit­tle while yet!


Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions are pro­gress­ing with­in Soite’s area. Cur­rent­ly, per­son­nel and elder­ly res­i­dents at Soite’s around-the-clock care home units are being vac­ci­nat­ed. Those who have already received their first dose of the vac­cine are now being giv­en their sec­ond dose. Mass vac­ci­na­tions of peo­ple aged 80 and old­er will start at the begin­ning of Feb­ru­ary. Soite will in the near future dis­trib­ute an infor­ma­tion bul­letin about the coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions to the house­holds in the region – please save the bulletin!

In accor­dance with Finland’s strat­e­gy for coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions (in Finnish), the vac­cine will be offered to the elder­ly after most of the per­son­nel at inten­sive care units, social and health care per­son­nel that treats coro­n­avirus patients and per­son­nel and res­i­dents at care homes for the elder­ly have been vac­ci­nat­ed.
