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 every day 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.
