University of Oulu recommend to use the Koronavilkku app

University of Oulu recommend that students and staff members start to use the Koronavilkku app. In this way we can work together to create a safe study and work environment.

Koronavilkku is a contact tracing app produced by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) to help you find out whether you may have been exposed to coronavirus. If you have a coronavirus test and are diagnosed as infected, you can use the app to share this anonymously with those you have been in close contact with. 

Koronavilkku will be available for free from app stores (e.g. Apple App Store, Google Play). The Finnish and Swedish versions of the app has been published first, followed by the English version later in autumn. 

In addition to using the Koronavilkku app, there is still a need to follow old, familiar anti-coronavirus guidelines, such as safety distancing, hygiene and staying at home when sick.
