NCMM temporarily shuts down non-critical activity
In line with University of Oslo guidelines, NCMM has temporarily paused all non-critical activity in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Some critical activities have re-started after a thorough risk assessment and consultation with UiO.
After consulting with UiO and conducting a thorough risk assessment on a group-by-group basis, some critical lab activity has re-started at NCMM. Strict guidelines and safety measures are in place for those returning to work and access to labs is granted on an individual basis after consultation with the NCMM Director.
We are constantly reviewing the situation and expect that those who can work from home will need to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
More information is provided on the University of Oslo Faculty of Medicine webpages (including guidelines from the University). These pages will be kept up-to-date throughout the shutdown period:
Any staff member suffering flu-like symptoms should contact NCMM Director Janna Saarela and Head of Office Ingrid Kjelsvik.
Advice for people who need to go into home quarantine is available on the Norwegian Institute of Public Health Website.
We will be updating all staff via email regarding our guidelines.
We would like to offer our best wishes to all staff and their friends and families in this challenging period.
