Reporting on exposures and infections in daycare centres, schools and educational institutes ends 

Helsinki has published weekly data on exposures and infections in daycare centres, schools and educational institutes since 23 September 2020. On 20 September 2021, the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) updated its guidelines on coronavirus testing for children under the age of 12. At the same time, THL updated the definition of coronavirus exposure in schools, educational institutions and early childhood education. 

Due to significant changes in the guidelines on coronavirus testing in children and in infection tracking in the early childhood education establishment and school environment, reporting of current exposure situations is not comparable to previous reporting and will be discontinued. The last report was published on Wednesday 29 September. 

According to THL, the risk of infection in places such as schools appears to be low. In the school year of 2020–2021, only 1.9% of the over 95,000 people exposed in early childhood education establishment, school or other educational institute were infected. 

In exposure situations in daycare centres, schools and educational institutions, the THL guidelines state that the actual exposed persons, i.e. those with whom the coronavirus-infected person has actually been in close contact, should be identified. We will continue to contact guardians about exposures and give instructions on what to do.

Exposure and infections in daycare centres, schools and educational institutions, 20th of September - 26th of September

The table below lists the number of people at Helsinki daycare centres, schools and educational institutions who have been infected by or exposed to the novel coronavirus in the last week. 

Helsinki has published this information weekly as of 23 September 2020. Information is not provided about small schools and daycare centres to protect people's privacy (*). The table is updated every Wednesday.

The Epidemiologic operations unit provides the guardians of the daycare centre group with the identified case of infection with a bulletin. The bulletin gives further instructions to the guardians.

The total number of children in Finnish and Swedish-language daycare centres in Helsinki (municipal and private) is 30,200. There are 44,260 children who attend municipal Finnish and Swedish-language comprehensive schools, and 10,400 more attend private or state equivalents, bringing the total number of comprehensive school students in the city to 54,660. Some 15,000 students are enrolled in general upper secondary schools and 34,000 students in vocational education and training institutions.

Measures to curb the coronavirus epidemic have been put into practice in Helsinki daycare centres, schools and educational institutions. As of February 2021, one out of every one hundred exposed persons has contracted the infection  in the city's daycare centres and schools. It is important that everyone continues to comply with the current safety guidelines, as well as the recommendations and restrictions effective in the area.
