People who are quarantined because they have been traveling abroad should no longer be isolated unless they develop a fever or show respiratory symptoms.
The quarantine of 14 days should nevertheless be implemented, writes the Ministry of Health and Care Services in a press release.
– We are following up on the professional assessments from the Institute of Public Health (FHI) and amending our arrival regulations, says Minister of Health and Care Bent Høie (H).
In fact, FHI believes that it is better if foreigners receive the same treatment as others who show symptoms without being tested – namely that they stay home for a day after they become symptom-free.
Høie reminds us that this applies primarily to Norwegians who come home from abroad, as foreign nationals without residency can no longer enter the country.
