COVID-19 Information




The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) a pandemic on March 11, which continues to spread across the globe and disrupt lives.

From the start of the virus outbreak, we at the Joint Warfare Centre, have implemented robust prevention and response measures guided by the Norwegian health authorities and are in regular contact with local government.

The Joint Warfare Centre maintains its mission-readiness and continues its core task in support of Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT) and Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR).

We are soldiers and civilians from 15 NATO Nations, and we are united as “One Team” in our shared purpose to prevent and fight the COVID-19 pandemic. We, therefore, continue to do our part to help reduce the potential spread of the coronavirus and protect the health and well-being of our staff, their families as well as our local communities.

As the Joint Warfare Centre team, we remain committed to our contributions to the NATO Alliance even though we have adapted the way we conduct our daily business in response to COVID-19. As the situation evolves, we will continue to adapt our response and get through this crisis together in a spirit of solidarity.

The Joint Warfare Centre Community Services Section is responsible for the provision of family support advice and assistance to the Centre's personnel and their families. Additional COVID-19 information, podcasts, bulletins and message boards are available on the password protected Community Support website.
