Two tourist association cabins are now closed after guests tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday.

Gjevilvasshytta, owned by Trondhjems Turistforening (TT) and located in Oppdal Municipality, has been closed after a guest was diagnosed with a mutated virus variant on Thursday night, the newspaper OPP writes.

“We will close the cabin from this morning and quarantine all employees. All guests have traveled to their home municipalities,” general manager Frode Støre Bregrem at TT told the newspaper.

The DNT cabin Fondsbu in Jotunheimen, where corona infection was discovered on Thursday, has also been closed for ten days, the Norwegian Tourist Association (DNT) writes.

Guests transported out of the mountains

The decision was made by municipal chief medical officer Marit Tuv in Vang Municipality after one guest and one member of the cabin staff tested positive for the coronavirus.

A group of 12 people was transported down from the cabin to Vang center on Thursday.

On Friday, it was decided that the remaining 40 people at the cabin would be transported out of the mountains, newspaper Avisa Valdres writes.
