The government is announcing new measures to limit the spread of Covid-19. The government will also increase its checks while enforcing stricter rules in relation to the use of quarantine hotels. The government is also establishing a limited, application-based scheme to facilitate exemptions from the entry restrictions in place. This will apply to technical personnel and will take effect on 20 February.
‘The infection situation in Norway as well as Europe indicates that we must regrettably continue to limit the numbers travelling here as much as possible. At the same time, we must seek to maintain levels of activity in Norwegian businesses,’ says Prime Minister Erna Solberg (Conservative).
