Two new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Kokko­la and a mass expo­sure has occurred

Two new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Kokko­la. One of the cas­es has led to a mass expo­sure. The infect­ed per­son who is con­nect­ed to the mass expo­sure is a pupil at the ele­men­tary school Chy­de­nius sko­la. The infect­ed per­sons are in home iso­la­tion, and those who have been exposed to the virus are being traced. At this point, how­ev­er, it is clear that sev­er­al dozens of peo­ple have been exposed to the coro­n­avirus. The chain of infec­tion is clear.

As a pre­cau­tion, the pupils and the teach­ers in grades 3 and 4 in Chy­de­nius sko­la are put into quar­an­tine and dis­tance edu­ca­tion up until the autumn hol­i­day 9.10.2020. All pupils and the teach­ers in grades 3 and 4 in Chy­de­nius sko­la are test­ed on Sun­day 27th of Sep­tem­ber 2020. Soite and Chy­de­nius sko­la are con­tact­ing the per­sons who have been exposed. The city of Kokko­la will inform the parents/caregivers about the teach­ing arrange­ments in Chy­de­nius sko­la on Sun­day 27th of September.

Expo­sure may also have occurred in the swim­ming cen­tre Vesivei­jari on the 23rd of Sep­tem­ber between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. If some­one who has vis­it­ed Vesivei­jari at this time has symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus they should call Soite’s helpline on the coro­n­avirus 06 828 7499 (open on week­days from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on week­ends from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.).

Sev­en coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in Soite’s area dur­ing the last two weeks. Over­all, 47 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia health care district.

It is impor­tant to get test­ed even if one only has mild symptoms
