It was confirmed Thursday 17 September, that two students from INN University at Campus Lillehammer have been infected by Covid-19.

The students are isolated and followed up closely and the INN University crisis management team works closely with the municipal superior doctor in Lillehammer. The municipality's infection detection team has an overview of all the close contacts that the two students have had as carriers of infection. The team has talked to all of them, they are being tested and eight students have now been quarantined. The infection tracing work shows that the infection is so-called import infection. It originates from contact with infected people in another part of Norway.

 Municipal chief physician Morten Bergkåsa says the situation is under control and that there is a very low risk that infection will spread at Lillehammer campus. He encourages everyone to be extra careful with the distance rules, hand hygiene and underlines that those who have respiratory symptoms must stay at home.

INN university will not implement further measures at the present time, but is considering ongoing graded measures in consultation with the municipal superintendent. This means that teaching and other activities will be carried out as planned.
