Around 30 people have been reported after escaping from hotels where they had to be quarantined after a stay abroad, Ullensaker Municipality states.

The last two reports came from Ullensaker Municipality at the end of the Easter weekend, newspaper Dagbladet writes. 

Ullensaker – the home municipality of the main airport at Gardermoen – is responsible for corona testing and infection control at the airport, upon arrival to Norway.

Everyone who comes to Norway from what is considered unnecessary travel abroad must spend the quarantine in a quarantine hotel at their own expense for ten days. A corona test can only be taken seven days after entry, and people can leave the hotel only when the result is negative.

Hefty fines

The Eastern Police District has previously informed news bureau NTB that they do not intend to arrest people who violate the quarantine obligation but that such persons will be reported. 

The fine amounts to approx. NOK 20,000.

On the other hand, four Poles in Sandefjord got fined NOK 13,000 each on Monday because they were staying together at the quarantine hotel and not separately in their own rooms.
