COVID-19 quarantine and isolation in Inari municipality, December 2021

When you are in official quarantine, you must avoid contact with people outside your own household/hotel room. You can leave your home as long as you keep a distance to other people. However, you may not go to work, to a shop or pharmacy, or to participate in hobbies or public events, as it is difficult to avoid close contact in such places. You can order food from a store. You can also request help from the social welfare services (phone number +35840 351 4150). If you are in quarantine and experience symptoms of coronavirus, you should get tested for coronavirus (phone number +358407709187).

In the case of Covid-19 exposure, the quarantine period is 10 days. You should monitor to see if any symptoms occur within 14 days of initial exposure. If you experience symptoms, you should get tested immediately.

You can be isolated because you have been diagnosed with coronavirus and could therefore transmit the virus to others. To reduce the risk of infection, you should stay apart from other people – including those living in the same household. If possible, you should stay in a different room from the other people in your household. If you cannot do this, keep distance to other people living in the same household. You may not go out, neither to a shop, nor to take care of other matters, even if you are in a good condition. Small walks are allowed. However, keep distance to other people when outdoors.

When you get Covid symptoms, remember these:

  • Stay home and avoid close contact with others. If you have to be close to others, wear a face mask.
  • Do not use the shared facilities of your apartment building when sick.
  • When you are ill, it is important to rest and drink enough fluids. To treat fever and pain, you can take over-the-counter medicines available at the pharmacy.
  • Maintain good hand hygiene and follow the coughing etiquette.
  • Coronavirus disease makes you susceptible to blood clots. Contact your doctor if you know that you have other risk factors for vascular thrombosis in addition to coronavirus disease.
  • If you have been diagnosed with coronavirus disease, stay at home until you have been without symptoms for two days, and at least 10 days have elapsed from the onset of the symptoms. If you still have symptoms on the 10th day or thereafter, stay at home until you have been symptom-free for at least two days.
