The police in Oslo warn that they can issue fines for breaches of the coronavirus regulation. This weekend, a party organizer was fined NOK 10,000.
The police have previously announced that they would be stricter in following up local coronavirus restrictions in the capital, and on Tuesday they issued a list of fines for infection control violations.
The police are now cracking down on partygoers and people who do not wear face masks.
Here’s the list of fines:
*NOK 20,000 for breaching quarantine or isolation rules.
*NOK 2,000 for not wearing a face mask on public transport when it is not possible to keep a meter distance from fellow travelers.
*NOK 2,000 for not wearing a face mask in shops, in the common areas of shopping centers, in restaurants, in religious and philosophical institutions, and on the premises for cultural, sports and leisure activities, when it is not possible to keep a meter of distance.
*NOK 10,000 for organizers of parties with more than ten participants or parties in venues which are too small for keeping distance.
*NOK 5,000 for those who attend such parties. In case of serious violations, the fine rate can be doubled.
*NOK 20,000-50,000 for violation of coronavirus restrictions on the sale and serving of alcohol in restaurants.
The police stated that they were notified of noise in an apartment in Oslo last Friday, where there was allegedly a large party.
When the police arrived, they met several people inside the apartment and some on their way out.
“It turned out that a party was held there and more than ten people were present in the apartment,” the police wrote in a press release.
The organizer of the party received a fine of NOK 10,000.
The police say that they could also prosecute the partygoers.
They are now working to identify those who were present at the party in question.
