The sailing ban for the Armed Forces’ frigate KNM Fridtjof Nansen that was put in place after the outbreak of infection in January has been lifted.

After it became known in January that two people on board were infected with the coronavirus, the crew of just over 130 people was quarantined.

Now the sailing ban has been lifted, the Armed Forces Forum writes.

Thus, the frigate can participate in training next week.

In January, none of Norway’s four frigates sailed in Norwegian waters. 

KNM Roald Amundsen and KNM Thor Heyerdahl are on maintenance, while Otto Sverdrup is training in the UK and will return to Norway in mid-February.
