Minister of Culture and Gender Equality Abid Raja (V) and his family must be quarantined after corona infection has occurred at the school of one of his children.

“All my three children must now be at home until the infection situation is clarified. One of our kids has probably been in close contact with the infected person. We do not know who it is, and we have been told to be in quarantine until infection tracking is carried out,” Raja told newspaper VG.

The family is now waiting to be tested, Raja stated.

He says he was in a physical meeting with both Prime Minister Erna Solberg and the government on Monday. 

However, neither Raja nor other members of his family have symptoms of COVID-19.
