Introduction routines for arriving visitors to Ny-Ålesund.

The station leader meeting addressed the issue of welcoming routines for visitors arriving in Ny-
Ålesund. The stations have different routines and demands in this regard, but some minima
criteria should be established. This has become increasingly important with the rapid increase in
activities that we’ve seen over the last few years.
The station leader meeting will follow up on this issue, and prepare in due time before the next season. Swine influenza.
Several persons have flu-like symptoms in Ny-Ålesund at the moment, and a request for more information in this regard was addressed at the meeting. The following information came from the hospital in Longyearbyen, and was shared with the station leaders on Thursday August 13: • The best advice for avoiding contagion of others is to maintain a strong focus on hand- and cough hygiene. Please also note the e-mail distributed on July 24. o Wash hands regularly and minimum for 30 seconds in running water each time. o Cough either in your hands or towards the elbow or armpit. This provides good • If you feel ill (typical flu symptoms like aching joints, fever or reduced general condition), stop working and stay tranquil. It is recommended that you stay at home for 7 days after the illness begun. This also to reduce the contagion risk towards others. • Face masks have very limited effect, and are considered less effective than focus on hand- • If you suffer from a chronic disease you should inform a doctor (and Kings Bay AS) if you feel unwell. Treatment with Tamiflu will be carried out. Kings Bay AS has a limited number of doses available, for treatment of particularly vulnerable patients. A screening of 6 patients was executed on Thursday 13 and Friday 14. The samples have been sent to Tromsø for testing. The results from these tests are not available before a few days, and might give an indication whether or not we have a swine flu outbreak. Kings Bay AS will follow up on this matter and provide more information if needed. Pan-Svalbard Workshop.
The Pan-Svalbard Workshop will begin on Monday August 17. Participants from many institutes and all research bases on Svalbard will convene to discuss cooperation mechanisms between the stations.
