Living in Uusikaupunki
This region is still in the spreading stage of the corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, the current situation is calmer, and the confirmed infection rate has gone down. Also, the origins of infection have returned to being traceable, for most of the infected.
The developments of the epidemic in Uusikaupunki will be closely monitored and restrictions will be carefully lifted one by one according to the recommendations of the regional Corona group. The lifting of restrictions will start with children and young people.
The Uusikaupunki Corona group has decided to remove the mask recommendation for children in first through third grade. This change is in effect immediately. There have been favorable developments in the epidemic situation in our region, therefore the mask recommendation for this group can be lifted. Mask recommendations are still in effect in schools for fourth graders and up.
The regional Corona group has announced that individuals twenty years old and under, can resume outdoor group activities. This will be in effect as of April 14, 2021. Social distancing should still be observed while engaging in leisure activities and hobbies therefore hobbies that require extremely close contact are still forbidden even outdoors.
