Corona, update for residents
25 March, 2021
Dear resident, how are you? We have now been living with the corona situation for over a year, and a third Covid wave sweeps across the country. There are both national and local regulations to follow, and we all try our best to stay updated. We see that even politicians can make mistakes, but it is important that we continue to trust the authorities, follow current rules, and that we keep our spirits up. There are better times ahead!
We ask all residents to stay oriented on local and national infection control measures and regulations. Hope everyone is doing ok - according to the conditions, that you are healthy, and that you have contact with someone dear to you.
If you or someone from your cohort gets infected
It is important that you have knowledge of the quarantine instructions for student housing, so you know what applies if you or someone in your cohort is infected or quarantined.
Which rules applies
- Read updated info from the Government about national measures here.
- In Bodø municipality, stricter regulations than national measures have been adopted in some areas, due to the infection situation.
Read updated info from Bodø municipality here.
Remember that it is always the strictest rules that apply, whether they are national or local.
It is important, and possible, that our tenants maintain social relations. However, we must all contribute to keeping the Covid-19 infection rate as low as possible. We would like to clarify some rules regarding socializing in our student homes:
A Shared kitchen is a cohort
If you rent a unit with shared kitchen, you can think of the students you share kitchen with as «members of your household». This means that you can be physically close to these students. Nevertheless, we encourage you to limit physical contact - also within the cohort, and to wash your hands regularly.
Remember that you shoul keep at least TWO meter distance to students from other shared kitchens (cohorts), or students who do not live in the same student home. Residents from other kitchens / homes are considered as guests.
Recommendation on the number of guests
The government recommends having a maximum of 2 guests.
We still encourage you to have as few visitors as possible in the student home. Please do also remember to keep at least TWO meter distance to your guest(s). Please consider, do you have enough space to receive guests? Also, remember to talk to the students you share kitchen with about what is OK and what is not OK when you have guests from outside the cohort.
In any case, the following is recommended for all visits:
- Keep at least TWO meter distance from eachother.
- Wash your hands regularly.
- Do not receive guests if you have Covid-19 symptoms.
- Do not receive guests who have Covid-19 symptoms.
Better to meet outdoors
The risk of infection is higher indoors than outdoors. Now, the days are getting longer and brighter, and it is nice to meet outdoors. Get some daylight! How about a stroll during lunch time? You can bring your lunch and coffee. Or go for a run with a friend. You can get some workout done and chat at the same time.
If you would like to make the most of the nice outdoor conditions you can borrow equipment for free - check out options where you study.
