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.
