How the coronavirus epidemic affects Christmas saunas and communal saunas, and shared facilities
The number of coronavirus infections has increased significantly. In response to the situation we have cancelled communal saunas and Christmas saunas in our buildings. Sauna shifts booked for individual households will continue normally.
In accordance with current official guidelines, the use of club rooms and other communal spaces is forbidden for purposes of holding gatherings until further notice. Laundry rooms may still be used by residents.
To reduce the spread of the epidemic, we hope that each resident will follow general recommendations and restrictions on gatherings also during their sauna shifts: go to the sauna only if you are in good health, take care to practice good hand, and coughing hygiene, and only go to the sauna with people living in your household.
We also remind our residents to take great care in exercising good hand and coughing hygiene. Avoid touching surfaces, such as door handles, bannisters, and elevator buttons with dirty or bare hands. Use the elevators only when you are alone or together with your group of people and follow safety recommendations.
In the case of a service request, let us know in your message if a person who is suffering from, or has been exposed to the coronavirus, or who is quarantined because of it is residing in the apartment. We ask that you leave less urgent service requests to a later time. Contact information for individual buildings can be found on the residents’ pages of the buildings. (Please note that the content of the page is in English.)

Authorities announce new restrictions and recommendations on coronavirus epidemic
The coronavirus epidemic in the Helsinki region has shifted into the community transmission phase. We hope that every A-Kruunu resident will follow the instructions that have been given and will do everything possible to prevent the transmission of the virus and the acceleration of the epidemic.
The Metropolitan Area coronavirus coordination group has issued new restrictions and recommendations. The restrictions and recommendations apply to adult recreational activities, the holding of public events, the holding of private events, public spaces, secondary education, the use of facemasks by those doing office work and by upper comprehensive school pupils.
The restrictions and recommendations are in force from 23 November 2020 and will remain in force until further notice. In addition, recreational team sports and contact sports for those over the age of 20 will be suspended as of 23 November, 2020 for three weeks, and the maximum number of people allowed at public events is limited to 20 for three weeks as of 23 November, 2020.
The regional coronavirus coordination group for Uusimaa recommends the introduction of the new restrictions and recommendations in other parts of Uusimaa as well.
We ask our residents to take the prevailing situation seriously. Because of the threat of the spread of the epidemic it is especially important to follow the heightened recommendations and restrictions.
Each person can slow the spread of the coronavirus through personal action.
- Remember social distancing
- Wash your hands carefully and often
- Cough into your sleeve or a handkerchief
- Use a facemask if it is not possible to keep a safe distance
- Work from home, if possible
- If you suspect that you have been infected, get yourself tested
To prevent further acceleration of the epidemic, official guidelines and orders are to be followed in all A-Kruunu activities.
A-Kruunu instructions for residents during the current exceptional circumstances
The current exceptional circumstances will affect everyone’s daily lives and most of people’s daily activities will be centred in their homes. This requires quite a bit of adaptation from everyone as well as compliance with regulations and consideration for other residents. At A-Kruunu, we will strive to ensure that our customer service, as well as the maintenance and cleaning services at the properties we manage will be as effective as possible during the corona epidemic. Our aim is to increase the efficiency of cleaning to prevent the spread of the virus and the main focus of cleaning will be on disinfection and the intensive cleaning of surfaces people touch.
Official guidelines issued by authorities
A-Kruunu will comply with the instructions and regulations issued by authorities for controlling the coronavirus epidemic within all its activities. We ask that our residents take the situation seriously, comply with the provided instructions and do all they can to prevent the virus from spreading. It’s a good idea to follow the current official guidelines on the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare website at www.thl.fi.
Shared facilities and sauna bookings
Residents should avoid spending unnecessary time in shared facilities. In particular, parents should control their children’s time in the shared facilities and in the playground of the housing company.
Residents should not spend more time than necessary at smoking stations. In all activities, it is good to consider safe distance to other people.
All open sauna times of our houses have been cancelled. Apartment-specific sauna bookings continue normally. If you would like to make a new sauna booking, contact the maintenance company of your residence. You can find the contact details of the management company on the A-Kruunu website’s building-specific residents’ pages. (Contents of the website are in English.)
In order to control the spread of the epidemic, we hope that each resident complies with common recommendations and gathering restrictions also during their sauna bookings: only use the sauna when healthy, take care of your hand and coughing hygiene and only o to sauna with your family.
The use of club facilities and other shared facilities is banned in gathering purposes until further notice, in accordance with the authorities’ valid instructions. Washing facilities can still be used by the residents.
We remind our residents to have very careful hand and coughing hygiene when moving in the shared facilities. Avoid touching any surfaces, such as grips, banisters and elevator buttons with dirty or bare hands. Only use the elevator alone or with your own company and follow the recommendations on safe distance.
In failure reports, inform if there is a sick or impacted person or people in quarantine due to coronavirus in the apartment. We request you to leave any non-urgent maintenance requests for later. House-specific contact-details of the maintenance company can be found in the house-specific resident website. (Contents of the website are in English.)
Disinfectant cleaning cloths, wet wipes and tissues should not be disposed of in the toilet
A bulletin on the topic by Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority HSY (The English text is below the Finnish): https://www.hsy.fi/fi/tietoa-hsy/uutishuone/2020/Sivut/Desinfioivat-puhdistusliinat%2c-kosteuspyyhkeet-ja-nenaliinat-eivat-kuulu-wc-ponttoon.aspx
All physical resident events will be rescheduled to a later date. Our digital era makes it easy to maintain a sense of community in the building and now is a good time to become active in the buildings’ social media groups. Everything that brings joy to others is permitted and recommended. For example, a singalong from the buildings’ balconies and other safe ways to maintain a sense of community are permitted.
Please remember good manners and to protect the privacy of others in the building company’s Facebook group and all other groups.
However, not everyone has access to the digital era’s communication methods so please also remember these neighbours. We wrote a notification to which our residents, who wish to help others, can add their contact information. We will be placing these notifications on your building’s bulletin board, but you can also print the notification yourself and place it on your building’s bulletin board. You can find the notification on our website and here. If you know that your neighbours are over the age of 70 or in risk groups, you can also drop a note in their mail slot offering to go to the store or pharmacy on their behalf.
We will provide customer services by email or telephone. Application for apartments will continue in the normal manner via our website.
Tel. +358 207 207 100
Mon – Fri 12.00–14.30
In filing fault reports both with us and our collaborative partners we request that you postpone less urgent requests until later. In the case of urgent work, let us know in your message if a person who is suffering from, or been exposed to the coronavirus, or who is quarantined because of it is residing in the apartment. This will allow us to react properly. Building-specific contact information for the maintenance company is listed on the A-Kruunu website’s building-specific residents’ pages.
Communications and information
We update these instructions whenever necessary, and you can read the newest instructions on the A-Kruunu website. All bulletins will also be emailed to those residents whose email address we have and be placed on each building’s bulletin boards.
