The United States allows fully vaccinated people to avoid the 14-day quarantine after close contact with corona-infected people. 

The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) states that Norway can follow suit.

This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changed its quarantine recommendations for fully vaccinated people. 

The change only applies if the person has not developed symptoms and has been vaccinated during the last three months.

Under consideration

“This is something we are definitely looking at in Norway as well. These are things we are considering,” department director Line Vold at the FHI told newspaper Dagbladet.

Vold explains that the FHI looks at data from foreign studies prior to new assessments.

“If it is the case that you are also not very contagious when you have been vaccinated, you will be able to avoid the quarantine requirement,” Vold noted.
