The Corona virus spreads in Jyväskylä, Soihtu gives a reminder of safety

Corona virus infections have been spreading also among students.

The road back to normal is built together

Soihtu wants to secure every tenant a safe and good everyday life. Therefore, during the last few days, common rooms and services have been widely closed. Soihtu has joined JYY in communicating the Jyväskylä city actions and collaborates continuously with the University of Jyväskylä and the City of Jyväskylä. We hope that by co-operating we can stop the infection chains, bring the number of infections down, and soon go back to normal life again.

We believe that all Soihtu tenants also wish for a speedy return to normal. We are very grateful for how well you have obeyed the safety distance, customized yourselves to remote learning and follow safety instructions. That is why we have seen long periods, during which many of our services have been in use normally, even during the pandemic. By co-operation, we can also get over the newest wave of infections in the city.

Care for others – stay at home

As a landlord, Soihtu doesn’t get tenant’s health data or any health-related information from the authorities.

You can find instructions for staying in quarantine at the soihtu.fi webpage (link to soihtu.fi article)
