A total of 34 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the wake of a corona outbreak at Meat Point in Sogndal a few weeks ago. The Municipality has now reported the restaurant to the police.

The outbreak was traced back to the venue from Saturday, July 17. In the meantime, it has spread to several neighboring municipalities.

“Now that we are starting to get control of the infection, the Municipality wants the police to investigate any violations of the infection control rules and also other violations related to the incident at Meat Point on July 17,” municipal director Tor-Einar Holvik Skinlo told the newspaper Sogn Avis.

The restaurant is familiar with the police report, and head chef Alex Hakbilen says that they are cooperating with both the police and the Municipality.

“On July 17, things got out of control. People snuck through our fire escape and through the windows. When we found out about this, we closed the venue – 45 minutes earlier than planned,” Hakbilen said.
