Confirmed covid-19 at Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences

A construction worker working in the I-building, Kjetil Moes hus, Campus Kristiansand, has been infected with COVID-19. Near contacts have been quarantined.


The construction worker is in isolation.

At the time he was working in the I-building he only met three people. They are all traced by the Municipal Health service, and are in quarantine. They will be tested for COVID-19 on Friday. The families are also quarantined until the test results are clear.

Extra cleaning work will be done Friday morning in the I-building.
