The City of Turku extends the recommendation on wearing face masks to cover pupils in grades 1 to 3 in Pansio School. The recommendation will come into force on Thursday 18 March 2021. For the time being, the recommendation does not apply to pupils in grades 1 to 3 in other City of Turku schools. 

The pupils will be provided masks by their own school, but they can also bring their own masks if they wish. Enough masks will be provided for pupils during school days. Teachers will instruct pupils on how to use the masks. The City of Turku would like to remind that masks should also be worn when travelling by bus and school taxis. 

Instructions on wearing masks: 

When symptoms occur, the easiest way to get tested for coronavirus is through Omaolo 

If the student experiences symptoms matching coronavirus, the guardian can complete a coronavirus symptom assessment for them through the Omaolo service at any time of the day. Turku residents can book a time slot for testing directly through the service. 

Help with matters related to coronavirus is also available through the centralised coronavirus helpline of school and student health care, tel. +358 2 266 2012 (Mon-Fri between 8 am and 11 am). 

It is also possible to get tested on the circulating coronavirus prevention bus without booking an appointment.
