A man in his 20s was fined heavily after appearing at the Tax Administration two days after he was quarantined on return by plane from Bulgaria.

The man arrived at Gardermoen by plane from Bulgaria at the end of May. He was then informed that he had to be quarantined for ten days due to the infection situation in the country he came from.

Two days later, he showed up at the Tax Administration in Schweigaards gate in Oslo after booking an appointment for an ID check and tax card. He did not inform the guards or caseworker at the office that he should have been quarantined.

The man has now been fined 20,000 kroner for violating the Infection Control Act. According to the law, persons in quarantine must stay in their own home or another suitable place of residence.
