The general saunas in Soihtu premises closed until the end of February

The general saunas in Kortepohja Student Village and Soihtu Vehkakuja, including the saunas in building A in Kortepohja, are closed as a pre-emptive measure against the spread of Coronavirus infections starting from 25.1.2021 until the end of February 2021. The tenants’ weekly personal sauna turns are closed starting Friday 29.1. until the end of February. Personal sauna turn owners do not need to pay the sauna turn fee in February.

Soihtu keeps a close eye on the recommendations and instructions given by the city of Jyväskylä and the general spread of the epidemic locally, and will react fast then it comes to other common spaces and services.

Please keep safety distance when moving about in the hallways and common spaces of the buildings and follow the Jyväskylä regional guidelines on e.g. mask use. If you are quarantined or sick, stay at home. Get tested and follow the instructions from health officials and authorities.

EDIT 29.1.2021: Added the information about the closing of personal sauna turns starting from 29.1.
