Normal daily life with increased preparedness

The Government decided to move to a normal daily life with increased preparedness. This means that most corona restrictions has been removed.  However, it is still important with hand hygiene, cough etiquette, and staying at home and being tested if you are sick.

General infection control advice

  • Stay at home if you have newly emerged respiratory symptoms or fever.
  • You should get tested if you if you get symptoms of a respiratory infection. This also applies if you have been vaccinated.
  • You must self-isolate if you test positive for Covid-19.
  • If you test positive for Covid-19, the people you live with who are not yet vaccinated, should get tested and go into quarantine whether they have symptoms or not. Other close contacts do not need to quarantine, but should get tested.
  • Clean your hands regularly and thoroughly.
  • Make sure you follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately and wash your hands. 
  • More information at fhi.no.
     

Traffic light model for schools and childcare centres

The traffic light model will continue as a local emergency preparedness guide that specifies recommended contact-reducing measures when the infection situation in the municipality makes it necessary and proportionate for infection control measures in schools and childcare centres.
