Health Services

Guests are advised to be adequately prepared for outdoor conditions

When exposed to outdoor camping conditions, infections and contagious sickness (vomiting and diarrhea, for example) may spread easily. The health and wellbeing of anyone affected by these can be weakened rapidly. Sick guests are advised to care for their health at home instead of spreading infections or sudden illnesses to others. If your stomach illness requires hospital care, please inform its medical staff that you have been attending the summer services so any possible epidemia can be traced.

Hand hygiene is of utmost importance in preventing epidemics. After using toilets and before eating it is important to wash your hands with soap and water and add disinfectant to dry hands. Disinfectant dispensers are conveniently located near the queuing lines near the cafeteria and grill.

Hand soap and disinfectants are also good to have at your campers and tents. Disinfectants can be purchased from the convenience stores and drugstore on the service site.

Clean drinking water is available from the juomavesipiste, water faucets and bottled water may be purchased from the convenience stores, both on the service site. When purchasing food, we advise to buy only servings for one mealtime only, because in warm weather, ready food can spoil rapidly.

No pets are allowed on the service site for reasons of human safety and hygiene. It is advisable to arrange care for household pets before leaving home for the duration you are attending summer services.
