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.

There are 4 new coronavirus infections in Kuopio since yesterday. 1 infection came from abroad and 2 were infections inside family. There is no information about origin of 1 infection.

We remind you, that also twice vaccinated persons may get a coronavirus infection. Vaccinations mostly protect from the serious infection. Because Kuopio is in an infection spreading phase now, all of us have to take care about hand hygiene and use face masks, when it is impossible to keep a safe distance.

There were challenges in the infection trace lately. Not all infected people gave an information about all places of exposure. It makes the tracing difficult, that`s why we wish more tight cooperation.

Changes in testing for the coronavirus in Kuopio

By the decision of Northern Savo authorities, made in September 13th, persons who got both vaccinations don`t need a coronavirus testing, if they have just common respiratory symptoms or there is a week or longer period after their second vaccination. No need to make a test eather, if the person has got a coronavirus infection during last 6 months.

These changes don`t concern persons exposed to coronavirus, persons working in Health and Social work services, or persons who are in a risk group. 

Asymptomatic persons will be still examined by consideration of the infectious disease physician according to coronavirus trace.

City of Kuopio stops informing about places of coronavirus exposures. Places of exposures are too many, so it is no use anymore to inform them all. In the future we will inform only about bigger coronavirus exposures, for example in schools and day care centers.
 

We still recommend to use face masks and keep a safe distance when you are among other people.
