Abstract

This project aims at disentangling the following two overarching and important questions related to the current COVID -19 pandemic: 1. What are the implications of the decisions by authorities in Norway during the COVID-19 pandemic in Norway 2. How can we rapidly and safely re-open important public activities without increasing risk of disease? Working packages 1 will answer question 1 by: • Real-time analysis of the events as they are unfolding by feeling the pulse of the population through group interviews and questionnaires during the outbreak to understand fears, trust, and opinions. • Estimate effects of these measures on health outcomes in the population by linkage to Norwegian registries after the outbreak Working packages 2 will answer question 2 by: • Rapid-cycle randomized testing of re-opening training facilities at Studentsamskipnaden i Oslo with close monitoring of disease activity. We will find the safest and fasted way to relieve society from the burden of restrictive COVID-19 measures. Our aim is to provide the public and decision makers with high-quality, evidence-based real-time advice on the most crucial decisions they will need to make during and after the COVID-19 outbreak.
