Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group informs on the 30th 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.

Soite’s area moved into the accel­er­a­tion stage on the 29th of Novem­ber 2020 when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic (link to the infor­ma­tion). The rec­om­men­da­tions that are in effect are in the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture on Soite’s coro­n­avirus web­site

No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area after the cas­es we informed about dur­ing the week­end. Two per­sons who have been infect­ed with the coro­n­avirus are cared for at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hospital.

The Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal is doing prepa­ra­tions in case of an increased need of hos­pi­tal care and in case of a need to move per­son­nel resources because of the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion. The num­ber of elec­tive oper­a­tions is decreased. Soite is prepar­ing a plan on changes in Soite because of the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion and we will inform more about these changes on Wednes­day 2nd of Decem­ber 2020 after the group of author­i­ties has had its meeting.

When it comes to trans­porta­tion ser­vices, the coro­n­avirus task group decid­ed that trans­porta­tions that are in accor­dance with the Social Wel­fare Act and the Act on Ser­vices and Assis­tance for the Dis­abled are not com­bined until after the 21st of Decem­ber 2020.

We inform about the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion dai­ly (also dur­ing week­ends) when need­ed. If the sit­u­a­tion is unchanged, we will not pub­lish a sep­a­rate mes­sage, but we update the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture on the web­site every­day.

Every­one can help pre­vent infections

A broad­er rec­om­men­da­tion on the use of face masks is in effect in Soite’s area. A face mask is one method of pre­vent­ing the spread of coro­n­avirus infections.

Stop the coro­n­avirus from spreading:

  • Wash your hands
  • Cough into your sleeve or into a disposable handkerchief
  • Keep a distance to other people
  • Use a mask
  • If you have symptoms, stay at home and seek out coronavirus testing
  • Install and use the Koronavilkku coronavirus app

It is impor­tant to get test­ed even if one only has mild symptoms!

Elec­tron­ic contact:

You can con­tact Soite’s infec­tion recep­tion by fill­ing in the coro­n­avirus symp­tom check-up in the Omaolo ser­vice at: If your symp­toms require it, your con­tact infor­ma­tion can be con­veyed to Soite. Alter­na­tive­ly, you can book a time your­self via Omaolo to a dri­ve-in test­ing site. The link for mak­ing a book­ing is offered after the symp­tom check-up has been filled in, if your symp­toms require a coro­n­avirus test.
