Housing

Updated 14:00 - March 27

Saman is monitoring the situation regarding the Coronavirus closely and adheres to the recommendations from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. You can stay updated on the recommendations here. 

This is where we will post information regarding Saman Housing. Information concerning you as a resident will be sent to you directly by email or phone. Please check My page and make sure your contact information is correct. 

Saman administration desk is now closed for visitors, but still available over phone and email during opening hours.

Do you have questions about the Coronavirus?  
If you can't find the answers on fhi.no/en, you can call them at 815 55015. 

Do you suspect that you are infected? 
If you think you are infected, please call your GP. If you can’t get a hold of them, please call the Emergency clinic at 116117. 

Please email us at bolig@sammen.no as well and inform us where you live. 

Do not show up at the doctor’s office or emergency clinic without appointment. 

Weekly cleaning
Because we know a lot of you are going home since the school closed, there will be no cleaning inspections until further notice. We ask you to keep this up yourselves in the meantime.

Locking your doors
We would like to remind you to lock your doors when leaving the building. Remember to bring your keys while going out! Our staff will lock doors left unlocked.

Can I have visitors at my residence at Sammen? 
Following the advice of our government we do not want anyone other than our tenants in our buildings.

Have you been quarantined or isolated due to symptoms? 
If you are being quarantined or isolated at any of our residences, we ask you to please notify us by email bolig@sammen.no immediately.  
 
We stay in touch with those already quarantined at Saman’s residences, and together with the municipality of Sogndal we make sure that all their daily needs are met. 

Do you need someone to talk to?
You can still book time with our counsellor or psychiatrist. The session will be held via phone or video. Read more and book an appointment here.

Is it safe to stay at a Saman residence now? 
It is just as safe to be in one of our residences as anywhere else. We are closely monitoring the situations and will take measures as recommended by the Office of Infection Control. We have increased the hygienic measures at all our residences, and we are following up on all those that are quarantined in one of our residences. 

I need to send a case about my room
Saman will for the time being only enter rooms/apartments/communal areas where there are cases/errors critical to the security of people or the building. This is to prevent the spread of infection between tenants and our staff.

I need help with the internet in my room
Send in a case via bo.sammen and we will help you as soon as we can.

What about my shared kitchen?
Only those tenants that belong to the shared kitchen may use it, but it is not to be used for social gatherings. We ask that those of you that are quarantined minimize the use of shared kitchens.

How can I prevent infection? 
Wash your hands thoroughly and use a paper tissue over your mouth and nose to protect others when you cough or sneeze. Wipe surfaces like your phone or PC frequently with disinfectant wipes. We encourage all our residents to take extra care with hygiene and cleaning in the common areas they use, and be especially thorough with table surfaces, doorknobs and areas around the stove and sink. 

Saman has also implemented extra hygienic measures, and are cleaning all high-contact surfaces often.
