All patients who have contacted this family doctor, including those who visited the doctor from December 27 last year to January 11 this year, can be identified as close contacts and must go to home quarantine.
High-risk contacts are all people who have been in contact with a patient for more than two meters, for more than 15 minutes, or who have spent more than 15 minutes in the same room.
The SPKC reported that the National Health Service (NSS) will provide more information on Friday on where Jakovina’s patients can get help from a GP practice.
The issue of additional possibilities to perform Covid-19 tests in Valmiera is also currently being addressed.
It has already been reported that the practice of family doctors Jakovins and Inese Gabrāne was closed due to absence in Valmiera.
According to the NSS, Jakovin has 6,295 patients, of whom 650 are children. At the same time, 1995 patients, including 215 children, were registered at Gabrāne.
Patients of both doctors can seek medical help from other family doctors who work in the area of their main activity. Residents of Valmiera can ask for help from family doctors Inese Rāviņa, Aivars Pauniņš, pediatrician Inga Grunte, who serves mainly children. Residents of Rencēni parish can turn to Dr. Marika Grūsle.
Kristīne Melece, the head of the Brand Management and Public Relations Department of Valmiera City Municipality, said that the NSS has informed the municipality that family doctors are absent.
Jakovin is also a member of the Valmiera City Council representing the Greens and Farmers Union. The last meeting of Valmiera City Council was on December 29 last year, but Jakovins did not participate in it, but the meetings of the council committees are planned for next week, therefore Jakovins has not met with the municipal employees at that time, Melece said.
