The number of coronavirus infection cases in Molde is constantly increasing.
On Sunday evening, the municipality described the infection situation at Langmyra school as “complex.”
Already on Saturday, municipal chief physician Cato Innerdal described the situation in Molde as dramatic – and pointed out that the level of infection in the city had risen to three times the “red” level, more than in March, according to Romsdals Budstikke.
On Saturday, several employees, teachers, and close contacts at Langmyra school were quarantined after a student at the school tested positive.
A ban on organized activities
On Sunday night, it became clear that a student in a parallel class was also infected, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reported.
That led to the municipal authorities imposing an immediate ban on all organized activities for all students at Langmyra school.
Several affected handball and football teams have also been notified, and several have canceled autumn camps, handball schools, football schools, and training until further notice.
