Rogaland County wants to mass test students in high schools for coronavirus. The goal is to keep schools open even with high infection pressure.
The request to join the testing scheme has been sent out to upper secondary schools throughout Rogaland, newspaper Stavanger Aftenblad writes.
“We hope to start with around ten schools. All students must be tested twice a week, and it must be done at school. The goal is to reduce the spread of infection through regular mass testing,” County Mayor Marianne Chesak noted.
She hopes the measure will lead to a more normal everyday life for the students.
It is up to the principals of each school to decide whether they should participate in the mass testing.
