Figures from the National Infection Detection Team at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) show that there are few cases of infection in kindergartens and schools in Norway.

“This is in line with the overall knowledge we have about COVID-19 and children, as well as figures that have been reported from other countries,” chief physician Margrethe Greve-Isdahl at the FHI noted.

In total, corona cases have been reported at 24 out of 5,730 kindergartens, 57 out of 2,799 primary schools, and 15 out of 413 upper secondary schools. 

Only nine schools have more than five cases of infection among students and staff in total. 

The schools with the most cases are Sagdalen School in Lillestrøm Municipality and Norges Toppidrettsgymnas in Lillehammer, with 24 and 25 cases, respectively.
