Kristiansand is on the verge of introducing several corona measures, chief physician Preben Aavitsland at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) said after a meeting with the Municipality.

On Sunday, the FHI advised Kristiansand and other municipalities in the region how to handle the infection situation in the future, Fædrelandsvennen writes.

On the same day, the Municipality reported 37 new cases of infection in Kristiansand. That’s a drop from 64 cases on Saturday. Many of those infected are russ participants.

“We ask you to follow (the situation) closely in the coming days and not hesitate to implement general measures if you see signs that there is an increase outside of russ participants and their families,” Aavitsland told the Municipality.

The new measures could include the closure of gyms, reduced opening hours for restaurants, restrictions on alcohol serving, and possible restrictions on sports and leisure activities for children.
