Here you can read which national corona measures apply now.

- We have to live with the pandemic for a while longer, but from tomorrow we can take a small step towards a slightly more normal everyday life. Now it is important that everyone follows the national rules. We will keep the infection numbers down, get the vaccine numbers up, and then we will take Bergen back again, says city councilor Roger Valhammer in a press release from Bergen municipality.

These are the main implications for the citizens of Bergen:

  • Maximum 50 people at indoor events without fixed assigned seats, but still up to 100 people at indoor events that bring together participants under the age of 20 who belong to the same municipality.

  • A maximum of 200 people at indoor events where everyone in the audience sits on fixed, assigned seats.

  • Professional / social events are assessed in the same way as private gatherings outside one's own home and have a limit of 20 people

  • Domestic travel can be completed. Those who are not vaccinated should be extra careful and plan their journey so that the spread of infection between places is avoided as much as possible. This is especially important for people traveling from areas with high infection pressure. (from May 21)

  • People who travel to areas with less strict measures should follow the recommendations that apply in the municipality they live in as usual. This does not apply to persons who are vaccinated

  • Home office for everyone who has the opportunity and / or flexible working hours whenever possible

Plans for the fall semester

The university management and the faculties are in the process of planning for the autumn semester. Arrangements are being made for as normal an autumn semester as possible, but alternative plans are also being made to take care of a possible situation with increased spread of infection and more restrictive measures.

During June, all staff and students will be invited to a general meeting to receive more information about the university's plans for the next semester.

UiB encourages all employees and students to keep their distance on and off campus, and to have a low threshold for testing for symptoms.
