The police in Tromsø have fined a man NOK 30,000 kroner after he violated the Infection Control Act.

The police wrote on Twitter that the person did not comply with isolation and quarantine regulations after being diagnosed with the coronavirus.

On-duty lawyer Ronny Jørgensen in the Tromø police district told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) that the public tipped off the police that the person was seen at a grocery store on two occasions on Friday.

The day before, the man had been told that he was infected.

“A fine of NOK 30,000 will have both an individual preventive and a general preventive effect,” Jørgensen told the channel.

The man has not yet taken a position on the fine.
