We have been informed about positive Covid-19 test results at Karankokatu housing site. We received several messages from worried tenants that the instructions and restrictions on Covid-19 have not been followed at many housing sites. We ask residents to follow the instructions on preventing Covid-19 from spreading: wash your hands and avoid contacts with other people. Wear a face mask whenever it is impossible to keep a safety distance to other people. We all need to act responsibly now. Quarantine imposed by the authorities should be taken seriously: stay at home, do not meet other people.  

Covid-19 exposure or a positive test result
If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, please get yourself tested. Inform the housing office, the university and your flatmates about a positive test result or quarantine due to exposure. When arriving to Finland from abroad, you should comply with 14 days quarantine. During the quarantine it is not allowed to make fault reports.  Please follow the instructions from the authorities on how to deal with corona virus prevention, suspicion of infection, or other corona virus related issues. Let´s keep student housing safe together!

Living in a shared apartment
Wash your hands carefully before and after using the shared areas. Please, clean up after yourself and wipe the surfaces. Agree on rules with your flatmates regarding safety, helping each other and possible coronavirus infection. If you suspect you might have the corona virus, communicate this to your flatmates and get yourself tested. If one resident gets a positive test result, also other residents of the shared apartment are in quarantine. During quarantine avoid contacts with other residents of the apartment. Wear a face mask while using the shared areas. 

Please note, that if you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, you are under quarantine or you have just returned from abroad, do not make a fault report. If a fault report, an apartment check list or a termination notice is already done and you get symptoms of a respiratory infection, you are in quarantine or you get a positive Covid-19-test result, please contact the housing office immediately. If you have just arrived to Finland from abroad, fill the apartment check list only after 14 days quarantine period.
