Corona measures at AHO


  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Wash hands thoroughly and often.
  • Keep at least a 1-meter distance.
  • Small groups rather than large congregations.
  • Keep AHO tidy so daily cleaning can be done.
  • Physical lectures in the studio. Digital lectures in group rooms and auditoriums. 
Take a self-test at AHO

In collaboration with SIO, AHO will now offer self-tests to our students and staff. You can get a self-test in the reception. The following students and staff can get a self-test:

  • You've been defined as close contact and have been contacted by the infection tracing team either from the municipality or the school.
  • You have not had the vaccine yet, and want to get at test.
  • If you have symptoms and you want to get a test. (We want to remind you to not come to campus if you have symptoms, but if you feel the symptoms appear during the day, you can use this offer. Remember to not return to your studio before the results of the test is ready.)

The self-tests are free

I'm not feeling good, what do I have to do? 

If you have symptoms of illness, you need to stay home, if that is possible with your lectures. If you need to work on campus, arrive 30 minutes earlier and take a self-test. 

What happens if a student is infected with Covid-19?

Student who are infected with Covid-19, must contact their teacher who will inform the head of the academic services Silje Nygaard. 

AHO will together with the student do an infection tracing, and the school will contact those who are defined as close contacts, and possibly needs to get a test. The school will send an email to everyone that there has been an infection case at AHO. 

You can get more information about quarantine and testing at Helsedirektoratet.

I've been in close contact with someone infected. What do I need to do?

How can I get tested?


If I can not find answers to my questions, what do I do?

If you have other questions than those answered here, you can send an e-mail to infocorona@aho.no. We also recommend everyone to ask fellow student, your teachers, and to seek updated information from the health authorities.

Can I travel abroad?

For this autumn semester, AHO will not plan any trips abroad. There are still many uncertainties, and the infection numbers in the different countries can change quickly. Only domestic travel will be carried out this autumn by AHO.

I'm an international student, can I receive health benefits?

Entitlement to different benefits from NAV. Foreign students can register as a voluntary member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme to claim benefits. The registration is free.
