At a press conference today, the Prime Minister informed about the government's handling of the corona pandemic after Easter. After the press conference, it has been concluded that the University of Bergen mainly will continue measures as they were before Easter.

• March 27, UiB decided to carry out digital teaching and assessment (examination) for the rest of the spring semester. We ask students and staff to follow instructions on “MittUiB” and follow the faculty's website, for information on specific subjects and study programs.

• After April 14, all employees who have not been given an exception, shall continue to work from home offices.

• UiB is working on reopening the campus through five different phases.  In cooperation with faculties and departments, it has been agreed who will be granted access during this phase.

Graduates in the field of creative and performing arts, and in the field of clinical subjects, are granted access to campus, if they have no other opportunities to practice their subject.

Scientific staff who needs to conduct experiments to complete a doctorate, conduct social critical research and similar is also granted access.

In exceptional cases access can be given to scientific staff with a particularly demanding work situation at the home office. The management of the respective faculties and departments is responsible for following up staff on compliance with infection control rules for those granted access.

• By April 20, the University Library will start a limited service for picking up material, books and copies, on campus libraries.
