Corona communication notification 

Information to guardians, students and staff

In the future, schools and day care centres in the City of Turku will not send information about corona infections and exposures to all guardians, only to the parties concerned.

The unit director assesses the extent of communication needed on a case-by-case basis. Infections are still reported if, for example, not all exposed persons have been reached, there are particularly many exposures and when the child/young person belongs to the so-called low-risk exposed. The so-called high-risk exposed who are assigned quarantine will receive information from infectious disease authorities.

New information about infections is communicated to caregivers primarily during working hours unless it is a case of an exceptional cluster of infections.

Turku day care centres, schools and educational institutions continue to follow enhanced hygiene practices.
