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 five new coronavirus infections in Kuopio since yesterday. All of them are infections inside families, where exposed persons were placed in quarantine already.
There were coronavirus exposures in few schools, day care centers and leisure clubs (Christian day care center Timantti, Pitkälampi day care center, Nilsiä highschool, Hatsala upper comprehensive school, Savo technical college, Kalevala school`s preschool group, Savonia-polytechnic, football teams and floorball teams). Exposed persons got necessary information from schools, day care centers and leisure clubs.
Coronavirus trace in Kuopio is overcrowded. Because of that city of Kuopio asks to avoid extra contacts to Coronavirus trace service and Corona help line.
There is a coronavirus exposure in Pitkälampi day care center. Parents got a bulletin about that by muksunetti and will be contacted by phone on weekdays as well.
