INN University students and employees in 15 additional municipalities are, among other things, asked not to come to the campuses following the government's tightening of infection prevention measures on Sunday.

The municipalities in question are Asker, Aurskog-Høland, Bærum, Drammen, Horten, Lier, Lillestrøm, Lunner, Lørenskog, Marker, Nittedal, Rakkestad, Rælingen, Råde and Skiptvedt.

On Saturday, the government introduced new and stricter coronavirus measures in 10 municipalities in Eastern Norway, including Oslo. As a result, INN University has introduced several measures that apply to students and employees who live in the aforementioned municipalities.

On Sunday, stricter measures were introduced in another 15 municipalities. The measures INN University has introduced will also apply to students and employees who live in these municipalities, initially until 31 January.

The infection control measures in the 25 municipalities have consequences for students from these municipalities who are scheduled to participate in practical experiential learning, for students who will carry out internships in the relevant municipalities, and for employees and students who commute from these municipalities to INN University’s campuses.
