Koronaviruset: Informasjon og råd

Corona information in ENGLISH

If you have newly arisen respiratory tract symptoms, wait outside the doctor's office, until someone picks you up (after making appointment). Do not go inside the building with "sore throat" by yourself.

December 1.: It is a national recommendation to use face masks in shops, public buses and taxis, where you can't keep one metre distance. This also applies to Åfjord. You should also wear face mask when you visit nursing homes.

Keep distance to others when you can, and avoid hugs and shaking hands. Consider to reduce the number of close contacts you have. 

November 17.: Important: Testing of close contacts, including children under 18 years of age

If you get symptoms of Covid-19, it is still important to have a test. Stay at home if you feel unwell. If you get infected by Covid-19, it is still important to isolate yourself.
