Three new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area

Three new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The infec­tions are con­nect­ed to the chain of infec­tions that was con­firmed in Vasa. The infec­tions have also led to a mass expo­sure of approx­i­mate­ly 30 per­sons. The exposed per­sons have been traced and put into quar­an­tine. All of the infect­ed per­sons have only mild symp­toms and they are cared for at home.

Over­all, 58 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have now been con­firmed in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia health care dis­trict dur­ing the whole pan­dem­ic. Approx­i­mate­ly 250 per­sons are cur­rent­ly in quar­an­tine in Soite’s area.

We gave infor­ma­tion yes­ter­day about a broad­er rec­om­men­da­tion on the use of face masks in Soite’s area. As a pre­ven­tive mea­sure, we broad­ened the rec­om­men­da­tion on the use of face masks to also apply to pub­lic spaces such as stores, upper sec­ondary insti­tutes and uni­ver­si­ties. The deci­sion was made in the group of region­al author­i­ties that con­sists of the lead­ing per­sons in Soite when it comes to the coro­n­avirus, the Region­al State Admin­is­tra­tive Agen­cies, The Finnish insti­tute for health and wel­fare THL and the Cen­tre for Economig Devel­op­ment, Trans­port and the Environment.
