Covid-19 situation at NHH

Students are requested to study at home if they have the opportunity. All remaining teaching activities at all levels will be only digital. All employees who do not have tasks that make it absolutely necessary to be on campus, shall work from home.

Updated Friday 13 November, 2.55 PM.

The measures at NHH follow the regulations from Bergen municipality.

Two students have been reported infected this week. A total of 202 NHH students have been confirmed infected since the start of the semester. 

No employees have been reported infected.

NHH follows the infection situation closely, but as long as the infection rates are moderate, numbers will only be updated Mondays and Fridays.

Teaching

Physical teaching is cancelled, and thus all teaching will be digital.

Facilities

More details about opening hours, access and facilities

Students are again urged to strictly comply with the infection prevention guidelines. Furthermore, students should have a low threshold for being tested and pay extra attention to whether they have symptoms.

The most important measures that each and every one of us shall take, are:

  • Keep a distance of 1 metre - always
  • Wash your hands often
  • Disinfect your work surfaces 

The NHH management stresses that it still is important that everyone who is confirmed infected reports to NHH.

NHH infection control guide

The infection control guide provides guidelines for how employees and students should minimise the risk of infection. Keeping a distance of at least one metre, washing your hands thoroughly and staying at home if you do not feel well are the most important measures that everyone should follow.
