To contain the spread of the virus, the Health Board has updated the guidelines for commercial businesses on how to clean surfaces and rooms, how to ensure good indoor air quality, how to ensure food safety and the safety of clients and employees. Also, the guidelines have been updated to include information about what to do if an employee is infected with a respiratory disease. General director of the Health Board Merike Jürilo would like to thank all merchants, who have acted responsibly and have rapidly made adjustments to their commercial spaces.  More information: www.terviseamet.ee/et/COVID-19-trukised#JUHENDID

Due to the emergency situation in Estonia, a ban on visits applies to all social welfare institutions, hospitals and prisons until the preliminary date of 1 May 2020. To contain the further spread of the COVID-19 infection, all regular, planned health care outside of the national network of hospitals has been stopped. Private medical establishments and dental clinics will only provide emergency care. Regular treatments are stopped to contain the spread of the virus and in the interest of using personal protective equipment more economically. Regular treatments that have already been started will be reassessed by the doctor and patient, on a case-by-case basis. All regular treatments, whose cessation would endanger a patient’s health, will have to be carried out to their completion.
 

Explanation from the Health and Welfare Information Systems Centre

In the statistics published today, one positive result from the Ida-Viru County found on 10 April was moved among the data for 12 April due to corrections made by the laboratory. Healthcare service providers (including laboratories) have the option of making corrections, changes and cancellations to the submitted documents. In the open source data, we always publish the latest information, updated once per 24 hours according to first time test results from the health information system TIS. The open source data also already includes any corrections, changes and cancelled results from previous periods.
