Police throughout the country close several services that involve direct contact with the public as a result of the danger of infection.

The Trøndelag police district reported night to Friday that they with immediate effect will close ordinary public services. Southeastern police districts have also introduced similar restrictions to limit the risk of infection from the coronavirus.

– ‘The police must do this to avoid the risk of contamination to the public and police personnel. Those who have appointments for a passport or foreign services can meet at their scheduled time, but this can be changed at short notice,’ the Southeastern Police District writes in a press release on Thursday.

“Special needs will be addressed,” Trøndelag police district said, which will publish more information Friday.

The Nordland police district closes for all countermeasures, which will affect the passport and immigration administration.

– These services will be closed with effect from March 12 and initially until March 26, writes the police district, who regrets the inconvenience it will cause.

In Oslo, the Section for Immigration Management will remain open for those who already have appointments, but says this can change and asks people to stay informed.
