– Should we change, then this was the time. There are a number of factors that mean that I, together with the emergency preparedness organization, have landed on this, says Rector Petter Aasen to Khrono.
Even though only the Kongsberg campus is directly affected by the government’s regional corona measures, Aasen thinks that an exact municipality with this will apply, can quickly change.
– In recent days, we have also registered and increased infection pressure on many of our campuses. Christmas is approaching, so if you should be so unlucky to be in close contact, it can mean for some students that the journey home is in danger, he says.
In addition, USN, which among other things has a campus in Drammen, commutes a lot to its campus from people who live in Oslo.
