A new update from the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) shows that the number of schools and kindergartens where cases of COVID-19 have led to the quarantine of students, children, and employees has decreased.
After high infection rates in November 2020, the number of registered illness cases in schools and kindergartens decreased in December.
“These figures still show that small outbreaks are most common,” Margrethe Greve-Isdahl at the FHI noted.
In November, 31 schools had outbreaks with more than 10 cases. In comparison, in December, 12 schools had outbreaks with 10 or more cases.
In December, 74 kindergartens had one or more cases that led to children and employees being quarantined. In November, there were 112 such cases in Norwegian kindergartens.
