Upper secondary schools in Norway have been at a red level since the government introduced a number of strict measures in December last year.

Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre confirmed to TV 2 before the weekend that there will be changes to some corona measures during this week.

The current measures last until 14 January, but the red level in upper secondary school will change earlier.

Hølleland says that they have commissioned national health and education authorities to create a new yellow level to get more students at school.
