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.

There are 7 new coronavirus infections in Kuopio since yesterday. We don`t have an informations about all infections`origins, because the coronavirus trace is overcrowded. Most infections yesterday and today came from group exposures in schools, day care centers and from private students`events.

There are 42 new coronavirus infections in Kuopio since yesterday. There is no information about all origins of infections.

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.
