To coro­n­avirus tests only after con­tact by phone

Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Joint Munic­i­pal Author­i­ty For Social And Health Ser­vices Soite wish­es to say as a reminder that coro­n­avirus tests are always based on con­tact by phone and a booked appoint­ment.  There­fore, if you sus­pect you have been infect­ed with the coro­n­avirus, do not come in to Soite’s unit. Instead, call us first.

Soite’s coro­n­avirus helpline is open on week­days from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on week­ends from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., phone 06 828 7499.

We also wish to say as a reminder that Soite’s com­mon emer­gency clin­ic (yhteispäivystys/samjouren) should be con­tact­ed out­side of the helpline’s hours only if urgent care is required. In oth­er cas­es, the coro­n­avirus tests are done at the infec­tion recep­tions at the main health care sta­tion in Kokko­la and the health sta­tions in Kan­nus and Tunkkari dur­ing their open­ing hours.

When it comes to coro­n­avirus tests for per­sons who are under 16 years old, please con­tact Soite’s pae­di­atric emer­gency clin­ic (las­ten päivystys/barnakuten), phone 06 826 4444.
