A student at Lillehammer campus has tested positive for COVID-19. Students and staff must be on the lookout for possible symptoms, exercise a low threshold for testing, and wait at home for a negative test result after getting tested.

The student tested positive on Thursday 15 April. The student has been present at the campus for the past week and has used the library, reading rooms and cafeteria. The infection tracking efforts have not identified close contacts at INN University.

“People who have been present at the Lillehammer campus in the last week must exercise a low threshold for testing in case of symptoms of COVID-19. They must contact the municipality for testing, and stay at home until the test result is available”, says emergency preparedness manager at INN University Marit Torgersen.

INN University has a close dialogue with the infection control authority in Lillehammer in the follow-up of the case of infection. The assessment so far is that there is no need for other special measures at this time.
