How to avoid infection?

Respiratory infections, including coronavirus, are best avoided by maintaining good hand and cough hygiene. Coronavirus spreads in the same way as, for example, seasonal influenza, i.e. coughing and sneezing and via hands contaminated by respiratory secretion.

Always wash your hands:

  • when coming in from outside
  • before preparing food or eating
  • after using the toilet
  • after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
  • after touching the same surfaces as someone with the flu.

Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth unless you have just washed your hands.

Cough correctly – do not infect others: see a video with instructions for coughing

More information and instructions on how to avoid infections is available e.g. on the THL website

The Finnish Institute of Occupational Health has also issued guidelines to prevent coronavirus infection (in Finnish)

What to do when suspecting a coronavirus infection?

  • You can take an online medical COVID-19 symptom check-up at Omaolo symptom check-up service

Students may receive advice and instructions concerning the coronavirus from the public health nurses at Student Health Services.
