Criteria for evaluating which areas have sufficiently low incidence in EU/EEA/Schengen area
The requirements for entry quarantine do not apply for travellers who are resident in countries in the EU/EEA/Schengen area with fewer than 20 confirmed cases per 100 000 inhabitants during the last two weeks (evaluated on a national level), and fewer than 5 per cent positive tests on average per week over the last two weeks.
In addition there is a comprehensive assessment of the countries, based on trends in infection rate ands other relevant information.
Assessments are made on a regional level when it is possible for health authorities to make assessments based on evaluations on the infection burden in each region. Currently, this only applies for the Nordic countries.
These criteria are set by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
