Oslo’s education authorities say that upper secondary schools must be kept at the “red” level next week as well. There will also be no other relief in Oslo.

Director of Communications Trine Lie Larsen in the Education Agency in Oslo Municipality told the newspaper Aftenposten that upper secondary schools would remain at the “red” level next week.

On Wednesday, kindergartens, primary schools, and secondary schools returned to the “yellow” level, while the upper secondary schools remained at the “red” level. 

“Red” level does not mean closed schools, but it can mean an alternation between “home school” and physical teaching at school.


City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) told Dagens Næringsliv (DN) that Oslo is following the clear advice from the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) and the Norwegian Directorate of Health. 

The situation is still too uncertain.

“We are listening to the professional advice… We will also not make any other relief in the measures in Oslo now,” Johansen said.

On Monday, the City Council announced a gradual and controlled reopening of Oslo. 

Libraries, individual shops, and restaurants were also reopened. Furthermore, it was again allowed to run indoor leisure activities and sports for children and young people and organized outdoor activities for everyone under the age of 20.
