Henceforth, the Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority will have to approve housing units used for the accommodation of foreign workers during the quarantine period.
The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs announced the information in a press release.
“The Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority finds far too many violations of the infection control rules when they check accommodation for foreign workers.
“Therefore, the government proposes that the accommodation units should be approved in advance by the Norwegian Labor Inspection Authority, so that it is easier to have control over infection control,” Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Torbjørn Røe Isaksen (H) noted.
According to current rules, employees traveling into Norway have to be quarantined due to the corona pandemic.
They must stay in quarantine hotels unless the employer has secured a suitable place of residence for them.
