Many continue to travel across the Swedish border to shop despite the fact that a 14-day quarantine is included.

– “Most people say they are temporarily laid off and still at home. And then that’s ok,” says interim leader Frode Petersen in the Eastern Police District to Dagbladet.

Nevertheless, he says that there is a frequent violation of the Coronavirus rules.

– “We register cars and people crossing the border before the 14 days have passed. It is considered a violation of the quarantine provision. Here, the Attorney General has come up with specific fines for such violations between NOK 15,000-20,000,” he says.
