Tracking of coronavirus affects school health care

  • Because of the increasing number of coronavirus infections, the school health care personnel is moved to the epidemiologic operations unit to work with coronavirus tracking.
  • This means that a nurse won’t necessarily be present in the school the same days as in a normal situation.
  • Planned vaccinations may be delayed and some health checks may be postponed.
  • The school health care nurses return to schools as soon as enough personnel is organised for tracking in other ways.
  • When the nurse is not present in the school, you can contact your own health station in matters related to health.

Each school has a designated school public health nurse and a school doctor, whose contact information and appointment hours are printed on bulletins distributed to pupils’ homes.
