The European Infection Control Agency changed Spain’s and Crete’s color to a “dark red” level of infection. This may mean that travelers from Spain and Crete to Norway must go to quarantine hotels from Monday.
The Norwegian government will announce its changes to the travel map and update which countries change colors on the infection map on Friday. The changes will take effect from Monday.
The figures from the European Agency for Disease Control (ECDC) make Spain and Crete “dark red,” which could mean quarantine hotel obligation for people entering Norway from the two.
Several popular holiday islands are moving to “orange” and “red” levels of infection, meaning travelers from these islands to Norway must be quarantined at home. These include Sardinia, Corsica, Sicily, and the northern Aegean islands in Greece.
Switzerland and Estonia are also turning “orange.”
The quarantine requirements do not apply to those protected against coronavirus. That includes those who are fully vaccinated or who had the coronavirus in the last six months.
