Although students may sit shoulder to shoulder in auditoria and classrooms, the one meter rule still applies in common spaces, in the library, during lunch and other breaks, and for all social events.Maintaining the one meter rule in all situations except teaching helps us limit to the number of close contacts between individuals and restricts transmission of potential infection. Continue to maintain good hand hygiene and stay home if you feel sick. Avoid shaking hands and hugs. Download SmittestoppWe ask all Nord students to use the Smittestopp-app to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. To facilitate infection tracing, should this become necessary, keep track of where you sit in auditoria and classrooms.
