The coronavirus situation in Kuopio
We stopped informing about the amount of coronavirus infections, because the amount of infections does not represent the real infection situation anymore.
If you got an infection, but you feel well, there is no need to contact healthcare services or get tested. You can make a home test, if you wish.
The most important recommendation for infected persons is: stay home at least for five days and avoid contacts to other people until you have no symptoms anymore.
We recommend to use face masks and safe distance in places where other people are.
Hundreds of infected persons are not contacted, so they are not inside this number. Coronavirus infection tracking is still jammed and has a few days delay. Origins of infections are inside families, in different parties, in working places and in abroad and inside Finland trips. There is no information about the origin of 25 infections.
If your coronavirus test is positive, you will get an sms. You have to be isolated for 10 days since infection symptoms started. Not vaccinated family members have to remain in quarantine for 10 days. You will get more information about the isolation, when a coronavirus tracking official contacts you.
