The new national measures apply from and including Thursday March 25.
All campuses have switched to digital teaching for the time being. This applies until April 12. New information will be provided prior to this date.
Five campuses are closed to students
The new measures do not involve changes for the campuses in Viken, Vestfold and Porsgrunn which are located in municipalities that already have stricter national regulations based on the covid-19 regulations' measure level 5A. Campuses in these locations are completely closed to students, including libraries and reading rooms.
Some activity permitted on Notodden, Bø and Rauland
Teaching on campus Bø, Rauland and Notodden is now digital, but libraries will remain open, and reading room places will be arranged for students who need them. Students who are scheduled to take written school exams, skills training or experiments /workshops which cannot be conducted digitally, and which are necessary to maintain study progression, may do this on campus. Information will be provided in Canvas.
Two meter distance
Up to now we have been advised to keep at least one meter distance to others. Now the recommended distance is increased to (at least) two meters. Facemasks should be worn if it is not possible to maintain sufficient distance, for example during skills training on campus.
Employees must work from home as far as it is practically feasible.
