Attorney General Monica Mæland reported that Norway is implementing stricter quarantine regulations for travelers from countries such as India and Pakistan.
Myland will meet with the press at 1pm on Wednesday with Minister of Health Bent Høie, Minister of Health Bjørn Guldvog and the head of the Department of the National Academy of Public Health Vold. .
-We do not recommend anyone to travel unless absolutely necessary, she emphasized and continued:
-We have implemented stricter quarantine regulations for travelers from India, Iraq, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
All travelers in these countries will need to quarantine the hotel-whether they need to travel or not. The austerity policy will be implemented from 12 noon on Wednesday.
We must expect more people to quarantine the hotel, and some changes may appear in a short time.
-We have seen many cases in the media of citizens of the European Economic Area (EEA) who did not enter Norway after returning home. Only people living in Norway can travel to Norway. Myland said that here we do not distinguish between unnecessary trips and necessary trips.
When asked whether the practice of quarantining hotels might violate human rights, Mæland’s answer was no:
-No internship-This is to ensure that we are not infected, and under the authorization of the Infection Control Act, the law provides considerable authorization to take necessary measures. We believe that this is to ensure that everyone meets the isolation requirements and is tested. Of course, we believe that our actions are completely legal and consistent with the rules and human rights that we have.
Hoy said that if all goes well, Norway will reopen in the second half of May.
-The Minister of Health and Nursing Services Bent Høie said that the advice and rules for vaccination and unvaccinated in public places must always be the same.
He said that as the proportion of people vaccinated becomes higher and higher, the number of restrictions and measures in society can be alleviated.
Nevertheless, some measures are being relaxed in private homes:
Hoy also explained that there can be no more than ten guests in Oslo. Oslo is also recommended by up to five guests, but if there are more than ten people in the private residence, you may also be fined.
