Earlier this year, the management and HiMolde released information and travel advice due to the outbreak of the corona virus. On Campus, posters has been hung up and new AntiBac dispensers have been installed on toilets and at the front doors.
The emergency response team met this week to review the college's pandemic plan. We urge students and staff to pay a special attention to the following:
The college asks students and staff to follow travel advice from The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health's for travels to and from places with outbreaks. HiMolde students abroad should always follow the advice given by local contacts/health authorities
Register your travel abroad in the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' "Reiseregistrering" (in Norwegian only)
