The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) asks people that are traveling from areas with high infection in Norway to be careful for the first ten days after arrival in low-infection areas.

“The government advises against unnecessary domestic travel. But the most important trips, such as going home for Christmas, can be a necessary trip for the individual,” the FHI wrote on its website on Saturday.

The FHI published anti-infection advice for domestic travel.

In some areas of Norway, such as in Oslo and Bergen, there is now a lot of infection. 

“Risk of spreading infection”

At the same time, many municipalities have hardly had any infection.

“Traveling from an area with a lot of infection to an area with little infection poses a risk of spreading the infection – regardless of whether you cross national borders,” Trude Arnesen at the FHI noted.

“In such cases, you must remember that you have a higher risk than those around you of being infected the first ten days after the trip, even if you feel completely healthy,” Arnesen added.
