Symptoms of a coronavirus may include, for example, cough, runny nose,
sore throat, fever, headache, shortness of breath, diarrhea, or loss of
sense of smell and taste.

If you have symptoms, do not go to work or school, do not go to your free time activities or do not meet friends or relatives. Do not go directly to a health centre or emergency service but always contact the health services first.
You can assess your need for treatment by filling in the symptom assessment form in the Omaolo service at Omaolo. The service is available in English and also in Finnish and Swedish:
On the phone you will be provided with instructions for seeking treatment.
