Corona information

Corona information

This page has updated information about measures to control the reduce covid-19 spread at KHiO.

16 December 2021

The government have introduced new national measures that are in effect from 12 a.m. on Wednesday, 15 December 2021.

KHiO is following up the national coronavirus measures with the following local regulations.

Face coverings

Face coverings must be worn when you are unable to keep a distance of one metre.
Face coverings must also be worn by the public in concert rooms and galleries.
The face covering requirement does not apply to students and employees who are engaged in teaching and learning situations where necessary skills are being practised (performing arts; theatre, dance, opera).

Teaching that can take place digitally shall take place digitally.
Teaching with large cohorts /groups shall take place digitally (the rooms limit the number of people). If this is not possible, practical solutions must be considered given the limitations on large rooms (separation into smaller groups, distribution of time for in-person sessions, dividing classes between Zoom and in-person sessions).
The teaching must be planned in accordance with the Covid measures.

The maximum number of people in the classroom:
In order to ensure that everyone keeps a distance of at least one metre in the classroom, check this overview of the maximum number of people in normal classrooms (login through Feide).
Students will receive information about any changes from the head of the course, from their department and from the lesson plans. If you are in doubt, contact the head of the course.


In the workshops it is mandatory to wear a face-mask at all times. Machines and tools must be cleaned after use. During courses and tuition the rooms should be vacated and aired frequently. Materials must be ordered by adressing the workshop master through e-mail or by phone - the workshop master will prepare materials and make them available at the agreed time and place. Keep your distance, wash your hands, and be considerate.


Everyone who can work from home must do so. Exemptions are still possible – decisions on such matters will be made by the person’s immediate superior upon assessing what the job requires.


The number of people attending public events indoors:
Without designated seating: max. 20 people
With designated seating: max. 50 people

The number of people attending public events outdoors:
Without designated seating: max. 100 people
With designated seating: cohorts of 200 x 3 people

The event organiser must see to that all attendees are able to keep a distance of at least one metre from people who do not belong to the same household as them or have a similarly close relationship. The organiser must also keep an overview of everyone who is present.

Performances that are part of an exam are not defined as a public event. At such performances, a “small circle” of audience members are invited to attend, and they are then part of the exam proceedings.

The concert rooms at KHiO are small, and all members of the audience are to be regarded as close contacts when they attend a performance. If a case of coronavirus is subsequently detected, all members of the audience will be contacted.

National recommendations and rules

An updated overview of current rules and regulation is available at the website.

Contact tracing


Every person with a confirmed case of covid-19 should self-isolate. This also applies to the vaccinated. See more information at

If a student or employee is infected, the dean or an administrative manager should be notified as soon as possible.


The Academy has succeeded in obtaining more corona test-kits.
Test-kits are therefore now available in the service centre until Friday 17 December at 15:00.
You can also pick up a face mask here.

Students can pick up two test-kits each for personal use.
The aim is to start the New Year with as little infection as possible on campus. Therefore, we ask you to pick up a test-kit now that you use at home in the morning on the day of your return to campus in January.

Employees who must be present at the Academy to perform their daily tasks also have the opportunity to collect test-kits. Employees are also asked to take a test at home before the return to campus in January.

Book regular test via SiO.

Book regular test via Oslo Municipality.
