Visiting restrictions instead of a ban in central hospital and general medical departments
The ban on visitors is in the process of being lifted at Soite’s units. The central hospital and general medical departments in Kokkola, Tunkkari och Kannus will instead apply restrictions on visiting.
The hospital and general medical departments will allow 1–2 visitors (who show no symptoms at all) at a time. It is important to remember that seriously ill patients are being treated on the wards.
Visitors have to use surgical masks that cover the nose and mouth and must follow the corona related instructions for hygiene. The departments have reserved surgical masks that will be given out to visitors.
The restrictions on visiting will be specified as needed in accordance with national guidelines.
