Stricter national measures to limit the contagion

The Norwegian government introduces the new national contagion measures in order not to overburden the health and care and protect critical community features.

Infection in the Uk increases, and we've now got new knowledge about omikron flavor and how quickly it can spread. We are in a more serious situation. The government are therefore more stringent measures to maintain control of the pandemic, says prime minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

The big challenge is that omikron is more contagious. The result is that more people will be infected. More of these will become seriously ill, even if virusvarianten would prove to have lower risk for severe disease. Hospitals, nursing homes, primary care physicians and emergency rooms are experiencing increasing strain as a result of ill patients, increased sickness absence among health staff and less access to temporary workers from abroad.

Vaccination

Norwegian institute of public health (FHI) will send out additional vaksinedoser before christmas so that municipalities may have the opportunity to vaccinate anyone over the age of 45 years where it has gone to 4.5 months between the second dose and oppfriskningsdose. By the middle of January, all over the age of 45 years have been offered a oppfriskningsdose.

New measures

The government tightens at events and nightlife for adults, the arts community and in organized leisure activities. There are also skjenkestopp.

– We do this because it is the situations that are associated with a high contamination risk to health and many of which can be transmitted in a short time, " says health and care services ms. Ingvild Kjerkol.

All primary and secondary schools and kindergartens shall be conducted at the yellow level from no later than Thursday, 16. December. Upper secondary schools and adult education shall have the red level. Schools and kindergartens have to make sure to have the readiness for rapid transition to the red level.

Universities, colleges, and vocational schools need to facilitate digital learning.

The introduced common rules for the isolation and smittekarantene regardless of virusvariant.

It will also extend the use of surgical masks and stronger guidelines for the use of the home office.

Unvaccinated and people in the b vaccination programs should deprive yourself

– We also come with a clear recommendation that the unvaccinated should find shelter. Those who are admitted to the hospital because of covid-19 is mainly unvaccinated between 40 and 60 years, in addition to older fullvaksinerte that has not yet been oppfriskningsdose. The proportion of unvaccinated hospitalized is very high compared with the proportion of the population that is vaccinated, emphasizes Kjerkol.

Also, people in the b vaccination programs should find shelter.

Effective Wednesday, 15. December

High in the yellow level

Kommuneoverlegen received yesterday evening message about the suspected case of omikron at the person in the aged 16-19 years in the municipality. It is therefore decided that the schools will be operated on the yellow level after trafikklysmodellen from Monday, 13. December.

- Omikronsmitten infects faster than deltavarianten and we assume that there are more cases in this age group that we don't yet have an overview of. Youth travel criss-crossing between skolegrenser and district boundaries, and we must expect widespread infection among youth in this group going forward, " says Kerstin Anine Johnsen Myhrvold.

The infection more places than we get discovered

Kommuneoverlegen make an ongoing assessment of whether the yellow level also in kindergarten and primary school is proportionate.

- We are now in a situation where we with high probability has omikronsmitte more locations than what we have proven. We have no longer the capacity to report on the outbreak, and called, therefore, now only outbreaks in vulnerable groups.

Only sms to the infected under the age of 15

- Smittesporerne our focus is now on follow-up of adults infected because it is they who are most at risk for severe disease. Parents / carers of children under 15 years who tests positive for Covid-19 will only get a sms from the community about what they should do, and must notify the private kindergarten/school, says kommuneoverlegen.

First confirmed omikron-the case of Nordre Follo

We have confirmed the first case of omikron variant of Covid-19 in Nordre Follo kommune. We must expect more cases forward when omikron is expected to be the dominant Covid-19 virus.

The 1. December came the news that the first case with the omikron was confirmed in Norway. Since it has been revealed more and more cases and outbreaks of omikron. As of today, it is according to FHI 33 confirmed cases and 182 suspected cases with the omikron in Norway.

It is proven omikron in most of the nation's counties.

FHI considers it very likely that the omikron will be dominant in Norway in the course of a short time, and no later than January 2022.

On the evening of December 8, Nordre Follo also received the first confirmed case of omicron. The infection is related to travel abroad outside Europe, and the person who is infected tested positive on 3 December 2021. The infection detection team is now working to map and follow up close contacts.

Suspicion of outbreak

There is also a suspicion of an outbreak with omikron related to a private company located in Nordre Follo municipality. The infection is traced to a stay at Norefjell ski and spa. The omicron of the infected in this company has not yet been confirmed, but it is very likely. There are currently 9 infected in the outbreak, none of the infected live in Nordre Follo. The infection tracking team is in communication with the company and the home municipality of the infected.

Must assume that omikron will dominate

In addition to the above, we have several infected where we suspect omicron, we are waiting for a confirming sequencing response. We expect a rapidly increasing number of omicron cases, and that the variant will also be dominant in Nordre Follo in a short time.

New national infection control measures to maintain control

The government has decided to introduce a number of national infection control measures to reduce the burden on the health and care service, and to delay and limit the spread of omikron.

The measures are based on advice from the Norwegian Directorate of Health and the National Institute of Public Health

- We would very much like to be done with the pandemic. Now the situation is still so serious that we must take new measures to maintain control. Therefore, it will be a different Christmas holiday this year as well. The danger of an overloaded health service and the spread of the more contagious omicron virus necessitate new, strict measures to reduce social contact in society, says Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

The Prime Minister says the vaccines will gradually make us more immune.

- The hope is therefore precisely in the vaccine. To those of you who have not been vaccinated: Do so. To those of you who are offered a refresher dose: Accept, says the Prime Minister.

The health service can be congested

There is great and increasing pressure on the municipal health service and the hospitals. Further spread of infection and increase in hospitalizations will reduce the capacity to treat both covid-19 patients and other patients.

- The measures introduced will slow down the spread of omicrons. We do not know now whether the omikron variant will increase admissions further. But the measures will give us time to gain more knowledge about the omicron variant's infectivity and severity, and to vaccinate more people, says Minister of Health and Care Services Ingvild Kjerkol.

Pouring stop

The government is reintroducing the meter, including in restaurants.

- It is important that everyone thinks about how many close contacts they have. If you have many, you should reduce the number. We know that a lot of the infection happens at people's homes, so we encourage people to have a maximum of 10 guests at home, says Støre.

The government is reintroducing the rule that restaurants with a liquor license must have seating for everyone. Alcohol can only be served at the tables, and there is a bar stop at 2400.

The government also introduces mandatory bandages when it is not possible to keep at least 1 meter away in a number of places, including shops, restaurants and public transport. It will also be the duty of the employer to arrange for a home office where possible.

Leisure activities

Kjerkol emphasizes that good opportunities for active leisure have great significance for our physical and mental health - also because it provides the opportunity to be with friends.

- Organized cultural and sports facilities are important for children and young people. It also has great value for adults. Although the development of infection requires that we reduce the group sizes for adults over the age of 20, we do not introduce a 1-meter requirement where it is not possible to carry out the activity from a distance. We also do not recommend group size for children and young people under the age of 20 when they train and participate in sports, cultural and leisure activities. They can still train together as they have done, Kjerkol points out.

- It is important that we still have social contact, but that we reduce the number of close contacts. We will not isolate ourselves unless we have been diagnosed with an infection. And when possible, we should meet others outdoors, says the Minister of Health and Care Services.

All new national injunctions and recommendations take effect at midnight on Thursday 9 December. They last for four weeks - but will be reconsidered after two weeks.

Somewhat reduced services due to high sickness absence

Like other municipalities in the country, Nordre Follo municipality is also affected by high sickness absence due to Covid-19 and that one should stay at home due to illness and newly developed airway symptoms.

Sick leave and consequences of infection control councils and rules are reflected in all companies. This is something we were prepared for and must expect to have to deal with throughout the winter, says municipal director Øyvind Henriksen.

Some companies have challenges with having enough staff to run certain services. This has so far affected kindergartens and schools, home care and services at the health station.

- We will ensure soundness in our services, and with the situation we are in now - like many municipalities throughout the country, where it is not possible to find substitutes, we will for short periods have to reduce the offer for some services, says Henriksen.

He emphasizes that there are services that can be reduced without affecting life and health.

- Today, for example, one of our after-school programs (SFO) has had to ask parents who have the opportunity to pick up their children, due to staffing challenges due to. disease, says Henriksen.

He makes no secret of the fact that this is something we will probably have to expect more from in the future.

- Nobody knows exactly what this winter will be like, but we are prepared for it to be characterized by high sickness absence, he says.

- Nevertheless, in the situation we are in now, with increasing infection pressure, uncertainty associated with the Omikron virus and that one should stay at home with newly developed airway symptoms, it will still be difficult to obtain sufficient substitutes, says Henriksen.

- All corona-related expenses are covered, so that we reduce in some services is to ensure soundness. No services are taken down to save money, emphasizes Øyvind Henriksen.

New measures in Nordre Follo municipality

The government is introducing regional measures in Oslo and several municipalities in Viken and Innlandet to delay and limit the spread of the new omikron virus variant.

- Our goal is to maintain control of the pandemic. We must protect the capacity of the health service in municipalities that may now be affected by outbreaks of infection with the omicron variant. It is important that we quickly limit contact and mobility in these areas. At the same time, we do not want to impose unnecessary restrictions on people's lives. But the government will take stricter measures if necessary, says Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

A major outbreak of infection has been confirmed in Oslo with the omikron variant in connection with a Christmas table, in which people from Oslo and municipalities around the capital participated. In addition, infection of the omikron variant has been confirmed in Øygarden and among some travelers to Norway from southern Africa.

Spreads quickly

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health believes that the extensive outbreak associated with the event both shows that omicron has a great potential for spread, and that it is possible that the vaccine effect may be low when it comes to the spread of infection. It has so far not been concluded whether the omicron variant leads to more serious disease. The vaccines probably provide protection against serious illness, but the degree of protection is uncertain.

- We need more knowledge. With the regional measures, we will delay the spread of the omicron variant in Norway until more elderly people have been vaccinated and until we have gained more knowledge. In addition, we have an increasing spread of infection in the country in general, especially in Oslo and Viken, and these measures will also limit the general spread of infection, says Minister of Health and Care Services Ingvild Kjerkol.

Introduces regional measures

The regional measures are introduced in municipalities that are affected by ongoing outbreaks of the omikron variant and where there is also a large burden on specialist health services. Municipalities that belong to the admission area to Akershus University Hospital are included. Several of these municipalities are part of the same living and working region, where there is great mobility.

The following regional initiatives introduced with the regulations in Nordre Follo and other selected municipalities:

It is also recommended to wear a face mask where there is a lot of people and difficult to keep your distance, for example when you want to retrieve your jacket for an event at the same time with many other or are on the way out of a football stadium.
  • Mandating that the workplaces where work from home is possible without going beyond the important and necessary services, to ensure that employees work from home all or part of the week. For example, it can be done so that the employees work from home half of the time.

The government introduces new national measures to control the pandemic

- The pandemic is not over, but it is in a new phase. We must learn to live with the infection. Because we have vaccines, we can now tolerate more infections in society. On the one hand, we must avoid overcrowded hospitals and the health service being overloaded. On the other hand, people should be allowed to live as normally as possible. We must always find the right balance in the measures, says Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

New national measures

The government is now introducing two new rules:

  • If you live with someone who is infected, you must stay at home in quarantine until you have the answer to a negative test. This applies to adults, whether they have been vaccinated or unvaccinated. To avoid quarantine, vaccinated people must be retested no later than after seven days. unvaccinated people must be tested daily for seven days with a rapid test or every other day with a PCR test. For children, this is not a duty, but a recommendation.
  • If you are infected with covid-19, you must be isolated for five days. This applies regardless of whether you have been vaccinated or not. Until today, the requirement has been 2 days for those vaccinated without symptoms. In addition, you must have been fever-free for 24 hours before leaving isolation.

The measures apply from 1 December 2021.

The government also makes some new recommendations:

  • A national recommendation is introduced to use face masks in contact with the health and care service.
  • The government is introducing a national recommendation to use face masks on public transport, in taxis, in shops and in shopping centers where it is not possible to keep your distance.
  • In addition, the government continues the recommendation to regularly test schoolchildren in areas with increasing spread of infection and high workload in the health and care service
  • The government requests that municipalities with increasing infection and high workload in the health service consider increased use of home offices.

The recommendations apply from and including 30 November 2021.

This is in addition to the measures that the government introduced on Monday 29 November to slow down the spread of the omicron variant .

The government also asks municipalities with increasing infection and increasing strain on the health and care service to assess the need for their own and stricter measures.

Easily accessible vaccine offer

The government asks the municipalities to set the pace of vaccination.

The government has asked the municipalities to offer a refreshment dose to everyone who is 45 years and older when those over 65 have been offered. Everyone who works in the health and care service will also be offered a refresher dose.

Nordre Follo municipality is well under way with planning how this will be implemented. Everyone over the age of 65, people with immune deficiencies and health professionals will have been offered a refresher dose before Christmas.

Change the requirements for quarantine and smittesporing

The government has decided to introduce revised down FEED in the municipalities from 27. september. It means that fewer need to go into quarantine, and that the municipalities in the lesser degree to operate with smittesporing.

FEED stands for testing, isolation, smittesporing and quarantine and has been a crucial measures to keep control of the pandemic.

The government held today press conference where they informed about smittesituasjonen in Norway, changes in testing and quarantine, and preparing to go over to "a normal life with increased readiness".

– More and more is fullvaksinert and the infection appears to be levelling out. It will still be the need for testing, isolation, smittesporing and quarantined for a while. We are therefore revised down FEED in the municipalities from 27. september, says the health and care services ms. Bent High.

Decreased FEED involves increased use of the monitor self-test, that the fewer the need to go into quarantine, and that the municipalities in the lesser degree to operate with smittesporing, they should now drive targeted smittesporing to only the most smitteutsatte.

More responsibility to the individual

Monica Biermann says Nordre Follo kommune is well prepared for the government of the day announced.

- The population must reach a greater extent, to monitor their own symptoms and test themselves. Everyone must have a low threshold to stay at home by nyoppståtte symptoms. And we should be a low threshold to test us. If you get a positive test, it is important that you know what you should do. You need to isolate yourself, notify your nearest, notify smittesporingsteamet and order the pcr test on testasjonen to the municipality.

Biermann believes the changes are adapted to the situation we are now in.

We see that very few are seriously ill, even if smittetallene is high. It is mainly due to the fact that many are vaccinated, we have very high vaksinasjonsgrad in Nordre Follo, 92 per cent of those over the age of 18 has received 1 dose and 85 per cent have received two doses. There is a good deal higher than the average in Norway. We encourage those who have not yet taken the vaccine, to call vaksinekontoret on 94012310 when we have good capacity.

"The pandemic is now in a new phase and we need to change our view of Covid-19. We must to a greater extent accept and live with infection in society. We will not be able to eradicate the virus, it will be in society for a long time. Those who have not been vaccinated must expect to be infected at some point. Once the at-risk groups have been vaccinated, the number of infections is no longer governing. The decisive factor is the number of people who become seriously ill and are admitted to hospital. "

Read the case from the press conference.

Gradual and controlled reopening – some relief measures from Monday, 26. april

The government decided on Thursday 22. april to add Nordre Follo kommune on tiltaksnivå 5B of the Covid-19 legislation. The decision is in line with recommendations from the ministry of Health and the Norwegian institute of public health. The municipality goes to level 5B without local innstramminger in the first place.

Agreed measure level 5B without local austerity measures in Nordre Follo
Nordre Follo municipality goes from measure level 5A level 5B without local austerity measures from Monday 26 April. It asked a total chairmanship in Nordre Follo behind in the day.

When we are not imposing local constraints, it is very important that all residents follow smittevernregler and recommendations to the best of my ability. We must be prepared innstramninger again if smittesituasjonen change in the negative direction.

– Smittetallene go slowly in the right direction, but we have to watch very carefully that the reopening is gradual and controlled, to avoid that we need to tighten up again. We know that many are tired and struggling in the situation with the strict measures we have had for a long time now. Tiltaksnivå 5B is also strictly, high tiltaksnivå, but necessary. We are pleased that the government now has adopted a common regional regulation for the municipalities in the region, " says mayor Jody Opdan.

Shops, malls and department stores can open
The change means that shops, malls and department stores can open from Monday, 26. april. There will also be some relief when it comes to training and cultural activities.

– This change means that the local industry is getting some highly anticipated easing. Shopping malls, boutiques and department stores can open from Monday. We are also pleased that there is some relief for children and young people when it comes to fitness and cultural activities, " says Opdan.

Dialogue with business and industry reinforced smitteverntiltak
The mayor stresses that Nordre Follo kommune follow the situation closely and will assess the reinforced smitteverntiltak among other things, in dialogue with the private sector.

– We will continue our positive dialogue with the private sector to ensure the necessary plot in the time ahead, in stores and shopping malls and department stores. We will follow closely the development, and coordinate us with our neighboring communities to the extent possible, have the common measures to reduce the mobility across municipal boundaries, " says Opdan.

Why is the red level in the schools when leisure activities for children and young people open?
The longer the pandemic lasts, the greater dilemma is the government faced when they are going astray byrdefordelingen in the community. Easing for children and young people at the same time as the red level in the schools maintained, is such a dilemma. The longer the pandemic lasts, the more shall the pro rata after smittevernloven to keep measures for children and young people closed.

– The opportunity to drive recreational activities for children and young people have very much to say for a child's mental and physical health. It is important to get to easing also for children and young people, but that one at the same time retains the limitation on the number of (near)contacts for the teachers and staff in the school.

Open leisure activities must be viewed in a holistic context and it is still the sum of the measures that have the greatest smittereduserende importance. It is the total number of close contacts who are important to look at, and then you can choose to see the school and leisure activity in the context, explains kommuneoverlege Kerstin Anine Johnsen Myrvold.

– Organised recreational activity may also be a better starting point for smittesporing than disorganized interaction between children and young people. We have, as of today, good capacity of testing and smittesporing. With such a capacity, we can quickly detect and mitigate any transmission in connection with leisure activities, " says kommuneoverlegen.

– Leisure activities are especially important for children and young people who do not enjoy school. Overall, there will be more to retrieve for the many children's physical and mental health to open for leisure activities than to just go to the yellow level in schools. However, experience shows that the infection in connection with the activities related to the socialization that collection in wardrobes, a collection of parents, group size, social gatherings in connection with the activity and voluntary work – not the actual fritidsaktiviteten, " says kommuneoverlegen.
