You no longer need to take into account the meter or the number of people at events and meetings. Admission stops and table placement requirements at restaurants will also disappear.

Corona regulations from September 25, in brief:

(Note: The info will be updated)

  • The 1-meter distance requirement is removed in its entirety and events can be held as normal. UiS has introduced seat registration and booking of reading rooms, this applies until further notice.
  • Rules for good hygiene still apply. Wash your hands often. Use soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Use a paper handkerchief and cough or sneeze into your elbow. Throw away the handkerchief and wash your hands afterwards.
  • Stay home if you are sick. Test for covid-19 for new respiratory symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, loss of sense of smell and taste, impaired general condition). Read more on the Government's website about when you can return to work, school, etc., when to isolate yourself and the like.
  • Stavanger municipality offers vaccines to all students. You can either drop in or book an appointment.
  • The main rule is that the exam in the autumn semester 2021 will be completed as a home exam, and this still applies. Students must check Canvas for more information. For those who are going to have on-campus exams, the 1-meter rule does not apply.
  • Employees who want to work from home must clear this with their immediate manager.
