Movement restrictions

National movement restrictions: Free

Restrictive measures mandatory between 20 April 2020 to TBD

UPDATE August:
On 7 August 2020 the government announced a tightening of the containment measures against Covid19 spread. Due to the recently observed increase in infection in society, the following is recommended:
– PUBLIC TRANSPORT: the number of passengers in public transport during rush hour must be reduced in relation to the normal situation in order for it to be safe for those who have to use public transport at that time. The government encourages everyone who has the opportunity to walk or cycle to work and school. Employers must facilitate that half as many use public transport, and state and municipal employers should lead by example.
– HOME OFFICE: it is recommended that employers facilitate the use of a home office 2-3 days per week for everyone who has the opportunity to do so. Shifted working hours are recommended for all employees who do not have to be at work during normal hours, and who do not have children of compulsory school age or kindergarten. Meetings can be held electronically. Home office days should be spread evenly over the different days of the week.
– USE OF FACE MASK: the government stated that face masks do not protect as well against the spread of infection as at least one meter social distancing. But in some situations it is difficult to comply with this rule; then a face mask can be a supplement. On behalf of the government, FHI is currently considering whether it may be relevant to use face masks in certain, specific situations. The government is waiting for a good and professional assessment before moving on to the question of using a face mask in different situations. The Norwegian Directorate of Health and the National Institute of Public Health will create campaigns on the correct use. More detailed advice will come on 14 August. The government already warned that people must be prepared for the fact that there may be recommendations on the use of bandages during rush hour on public transport. A recommendation for the use of a face mask in some situations in Norway will not be able to replace the general requirements of keeping at least one meter distance, washing your hands often and being at home if you are ill.

International movement restrictions: Partially banned

Restrictive measures mandatory between 12 March 2020 to TBD

UPDATE August:
On 7 August 2020 the government announced a tightening of the containment measures against Covid19 spread. Due to the recently observed increase in infection in society, the following is recommended/decided:
– TRAVELS ABROAD: anyone arriving in Norway from abroad shall be in quarantine for 10 days, with the exception of specified countries in Europe with sufficiently low transmission (“green” countries in the reference map, updated by the national authorities every 14 days, at least). As of 8 August, the government recommends Norwegian citizens to avoid unnecessary travel abroad – also to green countries. The Norwegian Directorate of Health is now working on establishing testing centers at selected airports, border crossings and ports. Travelers arriving from red countries must wear a bandage when they arrive in Norway and are on their way home in quarantine. Currently, the “red” countries for Norway are: Portugal, Spain, Andorra, France, Czech Republic, Belgium, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Monaco and Switzerland, plus some regions of Sweden. Since increased travel activity has led to increased infection in Norway, the government advises against all unnecessary travel abroadand do not open for travel from countries outside the EU / EEA area immediately.

UPDATE July:
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs still advises against travel that is not strictly necessary to all countries for which no exceptions have been made. This travel advice is valid until 20 August. The exceptions from the travel advice are not an invitation to travel. Everyone should think carefully before they travel. Those planning a trip must familiarize themselves well with restrictions and infection control rules for the country you are planning to travel to. The development of infection in Europe is still confusing and can change rapidly. Each individual should think carefully about whether it is necessary to travel. If there is a new spread of infection and a country or region no longer meets the criteria, the entry quarantine can be reintroduced. This means that you can risk being quarantined when you return home, even if the country was green when you left.
From 15 July, the following countries and regions will be exempt from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ travel advice: Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Greece, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Germany and Austria and the regions Blekinge, Kronoberg and Skåne in Sweden.
The exceptions from the travel advice apply to countries and regions that satisfy the National Institute of Public Health’s infection criteria. Based on the criteria, the countries are assessed every 14 days as “red” or “green”. The criteria can be adjusted if the development in the infection situation so dictates.
The countries in the EEA / Schengen area that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs still advises against travel that is not strictly necessary are: Bulgaria, Croatia, Luxembourg, Portugal, Romania, parts of Sweden (see exceptions above) and Hungary.
For travelers residing in countries or regions within the EEA / Schengen area with too high a level of infection, or from countries that cannot provide sufficient documentation of the infection situation, rules on entry quarantine will also apply after 15 July. This means that it is where you live that is decisive, not what kind of citizenship you have. For example, an American living in Italy will now be able to travel to Norway, while an Italian living in the USA will not be allowed to come.

Other

Other: closed/cancelled

Restrictive measures mandatory between to TBD

UPDATE 7 May 2020:
Quarantine changes from 14 to 10 days. People who have been in close contact for up to 48 hours before a confirmed infected person had the first symptoms should be quarantined. Quarantine will continue if you have been in contact with infected persons less than two meters away for more than 15 minutes. Exemptions from the quarantine obligation for six months are granted for persons who have undergone infection with SARS-CoV-2.

Employers should ensure that employees can keep a distance of at least one meter throughout working hours. In areas of the country where employees are dependent on public transport, employers are encouraged to facilitate home office and electronic meeting activities as much as possible. This is especially true in the Oslo area and in other cities with pressure in public transport.

UPDATE 30 March 2020:
A number of measures regulating work hours have been changed, allowing for staff in critical positions, e.g., health-staff, to be exempt from normal regulations. Economic incentives are being implemented.

UPDATE 26 March 2020: Government of Norway has announced a shift in policy from trying to contain the virus to trying to beat it. The difference is subtle and will not be noticeable in the short term. For the long term however, it may include some form of restrictions for a period of up to 18 months until a sufficient number of the population are immune or vaccinated.

The parliament have given the Government additional powers to bypass normal procedures for passing of legislation, giving the Government powers that normally would belong to the Parliament. They have literally set aside the democratic principle of trias politica, separation of powers, which is unprecedented in Norway.

Municipalities should make sure that necessary services aimed at ensuring health care for vulnerable groups, e.g., elderly, continues. This includes necessary health care that takes place in peoples’ homes may continue but precautions against contagion should be taken.
