The testing effort in the schools is expanded so that the 9- to 11-year-olds can also be tested for covid-19.
It writes the Ministry of Children and Education and the Ministry of Health in a press release on Monday.
Testing can take place at the schools if the municipality has test capacity for it, or at a test site.
It’s the more contagious Delta variant that haunts: Health authorities expect children and young people to account for an increasing proportion of new covid-19 cases this school year.
According to the Statens Serum Institut (SSI), the infection among school children can be reduced by testing them.
