The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) recommends stricter infection control measures for employees in schools and kindergartens in which there is a suspicion of the British coronavirus variant.

“All meetings between colleagues and other adults must be held digitally. This also applies to meetings with few people,” the FHI noted.

If one meter of distance can’t be kept between employees, the use of a face mask is recommended. 

However, that does not apply to kindergarten employees in the same cohort. The FHI also recommends working from home when possible.

On January 23, Education Minister Guri Melby said that the Norwegian government has started preparing for a full closure of schools and kindergartens.

The schools in the Oslo region started operating at a “red” level on Saturday.
