A person who spent time at the Tapiola wading pool on week 26 (22–28 June 2020) has tested positive for the coronavirus. The exact days and times when there has been a risk of infection cannot be reliably determined.

The wading pool is not considered a place where infections are likely. However, everyone who was at the pool at the same time with the infected person may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

For this reason, all users of the wading pool should monitor themselves for symptoms of a potential coronavirus disease. Possible symptoms include a fever, a cough, a sore throat, a common cold, shortness of breath, loss of the sense of taste or smell, and diarrhoea or stomach pain without an apparent cause.

What to do if you have even one of the symptoms above

  • Contact the health services of your home municipality to get tested for the coronavirus.
  • Do not visit any public places where you could infect others.
  • Do not invite visitors to your home.
  • If you are ill, it is important to rest and consume enough fluids. You can relieve fever and aches with medicines available from a pharmacy without a prescription. 
  • Cover your mouth and nose carefully with a disposable tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not into your hand. Place the tissue into a plastic bag immediately after use and close the bag and/or put it in a waste container. Wash your hands with water and soap and/or use hand sanitiser.
