Symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections requiring urgent care include: cough, sore throat, fever, shortness of breath, aches and pains and headache.

Because it is difficult for the average person to know whether their own symptoms are caused by influenza, a coronavirus or any other virus causing flu-like symptoms, anyone who needs respiratory help and treatment is always asked to call the reception of their local health station first.

Doctors and nurses will be unavailable at the health stations of Kirkkopuistikko, Gerby, Ristinummi and Vähäkyrö during Easter, 10 April – 13 April, 2020.
