Kristiansand municipality offers students drop-in vaccines at Sørlandssenteret, both the first and second dose. This means there will be no vaccinations on campus. However, testing continues on weekdays.
The test station in Kristiansand is open for rapid testing also on Saturday and Sunday. The offer is for students and employees at UiA, since UiA pays for the stations. In Grimstad, the test station is open on weekdays as before. Six students have been diagnosed with coronavirus in week 35, the last one on Sunday.
Digitalization Minister Linda Hofstad Helleland supports an innovation project that aims to prevent self-harm in psychiatry with the help of artificial intelligence. She believes this can contribute to the government's goal of vision zero for suicides.
