Overview: Some travel restrictions and recommendations are now in place. Domestic transport can continue as normal as is possible but we strongly encourage everyone to avoid leisure travel. Everyone should avoid journeys that are not strictly necessary (both domestic and international), avoid public transport if you can, avoid other places where you can easily get close to others, avoid close contact with others. Everyone who comes from outside the Nordic countries should quarantine for 14 days from their arrival in Norway, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not. This is retroactive from the 27th of February. Public transport will continue so that people with critical society functions can get to and from work and be able to distance themselves from each other. We request that people do not visit people in institutions with vulnerable groups (elderly, psychiatry, prisons etc.).
