A medical secretary employed at a GP’s office in Oslo has been sentenced by the Oslo District Court to unconditional imprisonment for 24 days for three periods of breaching quarantine.

According to the verdict, she had close contact with patients in more than 153 documented cases. 

These included blood tests, ECGs, and flu vaccines.

The woman in her 20s visited her boyfriend in England on three occasions when the country was considered “red,” and she went straight back to work afterward.

Prosecutor Karianne Worren thought it was particularly aggravating that the woman worked as a medical secretary at a GP’s office, and the court agreed.

A total of 21 quarantine violations

In total, there were 21 quarantine violations during three periods.

The woman’s boss disclosed the quarantine violations, and later the woman has been fired.

The woman admitted to the quarantine violations but thought she could not be convicted of having acted intentionally as she did not know the corona rules. 

Her boss denied that the woman was unaware of the rules for quarantine upon entry into Norway.
