Jyväskylä remains in the spreading phase of the COVID-19 epidemic – but infections are levelling off
Tracing has succeeded in determining the origin of infections in about 70 per cent of cases. However, the tracing effort is currently under a great deal of load, because of broad quarantines placed over the last week in e.g. several schools and a day-care centre.
Adult and child hobby activities to resume
Hobby activities for adults and children are being reopened in the city’s services and premises while observing hygiene and safety guidelines. The city would like to remind inhabitants to observe safe distancing when arriving at the activities as well. Those aged over 12 should wear masks in public spaces as well as dressing rooms.
Group exercise and sports activities will resume under the City Sports Services as normal, but some group sizes may be cut down to ensure safety in the available premises.
Public gathering restrictions issued by the Regional State Administrative Agency will impact the fall season openings of Jyväskylä Sinfonia and the City Theatre
The Regional State Administrative Agency for Western and Inland Finland issued new attendance restrictions for public events on August 11, 2021. The autumn programmes of Jyväskylä Sinfonia and the City Theatre will commence, with audience numbers limited to ensure distancing can be observed. Any changes pertaining to concerts or shows will be communicated to ticket holders directly.
The situation is monitored closely
Contact teaching continues in city schools while observing safety guidelines.
If the number of infections continues to increase and the need for hospital care increases sharply, the City's Emergency Management Team will assess the adequacy of the current recommendations and restrictions.
