The reg­u­la­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions remain unchanged in Soite’s area — a Christ­mas that is safe when it comes to the coro­n­avirus is secured

The COVID-19 region­al group of author­i­ties in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia had a meet­ing on Tues­day the 22nd of Decem­ber 2020 and analysed the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture in Soite’s area. Soite’s area con­tin­ues in the accel­er­a­tion stage of the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic and the restric­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions that are in effect remain unchanged, so that a Christ­mas that is safe when it comes to the coro­n­avirus is secured.

The sit­u­a­tion is calm in Soite’s area when it comes to the coro­n­avirus. Only one coro­n­avirus case was con­firmed dur­ing the pre­vi­ous week. The COVID-19 region­al group of author­i­ties in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia wish­es to thank the cit­i­zens in Soite’s are for fol­low­ing the instruc­tions so that Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia is now able to cel­e­brate Christ­mas in a calm sit­u­a­tion when it comes to the coronavirus.

Because Christ­mas prob­a­bly makes peo­ple move about more and the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion is worse in the regions near Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia, the group of author­i­ties decid­ed to keep the restric­tions and reg­u­la­tions unchanged. Soite’s area is still deemed to be in the accel­er­a­tion stage. The restric­tion on gath­er­ings by the Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency is in effect until the 17th of Jan­u­ary 2021: The Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency lim­it­ed the num­ber of par­tic­i­pants at pub­lic events and pub­lic gath­er­ings to ten peo­ple. Read more in in the press release by the Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agency (in Finnish).

Soite rec­om­mends that peo­ple avoid close con­tacts out­side of the fam­i­ly at their own dis­cre­tion and the max­i­mum num­ber of peo­ple who may gath­er at one time is 10 even at pri­vate gatherings.

A com­pre­hen­sive list on coro­n­avirus restric­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions can be found on Soite’s coro­n­avirus web­site: https://korona.soite.fi/en/recommendations/

Despite the good num­bers in Soite’s area, num­bers that are equiv­a­lent to the base lev­el of the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic, it is impor­tant to fol­low the cur­rent reg­u­la­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions dur­ing the Christ­mas peri­od. If the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion con­tin­ues to be good, the restric­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions can be made less strict at a lat­er stage and e.g. hob­bies can be start­ed again. By fol­low­ing the instruc­tions, we can secure a Christ­mas that is safe when it comes to the coro­n­avirus for us all.
