This means that the University of Bergen is back in a normal situation on campus, where the one-meter rule has been removed in all contexts. There is also no longer a requirement for the use of face masks.

From before, teaching and work in the reading rooms and libraries have been exempt from the one-meter rule.

These are the general advices that apply to the population now:

  • Practice good hand and cough hygiene
  • Follow the Covid-19 vaccination program
  • Test yourself for symptoms. Children in kindergarten and school are excluded. It is no longer necessary to test yourself if you do not have symptoms even if you have close contacts who are infected.
  • Stay home if you have new respiratory symptoms or if you feel sick. You should stay home until you are in good shape and you have been fever-free for 24 hours. Mild symptoms such as runny nose, hoarseness and some cough are fine.
  • If you have a positive covid test, you must stay home for four days from the start of symptoms or from the day of positive testing for those without symptoms. Children in kindergarten and school are exempt from testing, but it is recommended to stay at home if they are ill. They can go to school and kindergarten when they have been fever-free for 24 hours.
  • Contact your doctor if you are concerned about your own or your children’s health.
