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 sit­u­a­tion is calm. 

No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area. No patients with COVID-19 are cur­rent­ly being treat­ed at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hospital. 

The first dos­es of coro­na vac­cines in Soite were admin­is­tered yes­ter­day Decem­ber 30th and the vac­ci­na­tion of per­son­nel will con­tin­ue dur­ing week 1 of 2021. The task force wants to remind every­one that despite the vac­ci­na­tions, it is still impor­tant to wash and desin­fect your hands and use a mask and main­tain safe­ty dis­tances.  These basic coro­na safe­ty mea­sure can not yet be com­p­ro­omised with. 

Fur­ther­more, the task force wants to remind every­one that the coro­n­avirus test sta­tions are open for test­ing also on New Year’s Day and dur­ing week­ends. You should come take a coro­n­avirus test imme­di­ate­ly even if you have only mild symp­toms indica­tive of corona. 

Rec­om­men­da­tions for the New Year’s cel­e­bra­tions 

The coro­n­avirus task group gave its rec­om­men­da­tions for the New Year’s cel­e­bra­tions on Decem­ber 31st 2020. Dur­ing the pan­dem­ic, it is rec­om­mend­ed that the fes­tiv­i­ties are arranged as dis­tance gath­er­ings, and that masks and ade­quate safe­ty mea­sures are imple­ment­ed dur­ing phys­i­cal meet­ings.  This year dur­ing the New Year’s fire­works, remem­ber to observe not only the usu­al safe­ty mea­sures but also coro­na safety. 

Soite wish­es every­one a Hap­py New Year with the fol­low­ing instructions: 

  • Do not participate in festivities if you are unwell - stay at home if you have symptoms indicative of corona 
  • Limit the number of participants during gatherings - the risk of an infection spreading is significantly reduced if a group consists of fewer than 10 people. Please observe that even while shooting fireworks outdoors, the number of people gathered should be limited to under 10. 
  • Follow the instructions - maintain safety distances, hygiene and other safety measures 
  • Know your company - participant lists or apps help if you need to keep track of participants 
  • Have a good time - we all need to have fun! 

We will inform about the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion dur­ing the peri­od 1–3.1.2021 only if the sit­u­a­tion changes sub­stan­tial­ly in Soite’s area. The coro­n­avirus task group has its next meet­ing on Mon­day 4th of Jan­u­ary and the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture is also updat­ed then. 

The task group wish­e­sev­ery­one a safe New Year!
