In Jyväskylä, Coronavirus Helpline and coronavirus testing services are available also during the summer. Testing is performed on weekdays and weekends, mainly in Kyllö Health Centre. The Coronavirus Helpline and testing services are available for the citizens of Jyväskylä, Hankasalmi and Uurainen.
The symptoms of the coronavirus (COVID-19) include e.g. fever, cough and shortness of breath. Most of those catching the virus have a normal respiratory inflection, or a cold.
Coronavirus tests are performed also for patients with mild symptoms. In case you have symptoms that match the coronavirus, you should take this online medical COVID-19 symptom check-up Omaolo.fi and contact the Coronavirus helpline. This service will be open from Monday to Friday 8–16 and on Saturdays and Sundays 9-15. At other times, please call the Central Finland Hospital District telephone helpline, tel. 116 117.
A healthcare professional will answer the phone and give you instructions on where and when you should go to seek medical care.
It is important that you always call first. Do not leave for the healthcare centre or hospital while waiting for the call back, because this could put everyone else at the healthcare facility at risk of contracting the virus.
