“As society opens gradually, people become more in contact with others than before. Then it is extra important that the sick stay at home,” says Espen Rostrup Nakstad.
The Assistant Director of Health also emphasizes the importance of everyone continuing to wash their hands frequently and thoroughly, and that everyone keeps at least one meter away from each other.
The Directorate of Health now has a strong focus on what is called the TISK strategy, which is based on testing, isolation, infection tracking and quarantine.
“We are now in a situation where we can start testing everyone with symptoms of coronavirus disease, including those with mild symptoms, so that they can be isolated and not infect others,” says Nakstad.
