Two people have been reported for breaching infection control rules in Tønsberg. One of them was infected with coronavirus while waiting for a vaccine in the vaccination hall on Thursday, April 8.
The other person should have been in entry quarantine but had also turned up in the vaccination hall, Tønsberg Municipality announced. Luckily, there was sufficient distance between people in the hall, so the Municipality does not think anyone was infected.
The Municipality is now asking people who were present at the vaccination hall to have an extra low threshold for testing.
“A person who was in quarantine, and who later tested positive for COVID-19, and a person who should have been in entry quarantine, were in the hall on Thursday.
We are now vaccinating high-risk patients together with the age group 65–74 years. We take the incidents very seriously,” municipal chief physician Per Kristian Opheim noted.
The corona-infected person was present between 12:30 PM and 2:00 PM. The person who was in the entry quarantine has not been diagnosed with coronavirus.
