Using facemasks on campus and in teaching settings

Keeping a safe distance is still the most important measure to prevent infection. The university ensures access to facemasks when they are mandatory.

​The municipality of Bodø recommends to use facemasks in public spaces indoors. This also applies on campus.

The advice from the municipality applies in common areas and in other situations where the distance requirement is challenged.

Students and staff must provide themselves with their own facemasks in line with the recommendation by the municipality.
