Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) that the government is considering whether there is a need for stricter test regimes for everyone coming to Norway.
The British coronavirus mutation, which is believed to be a far more contagious variant of the coronavirus, was detected in Norway on Sunday.
“It makes infection control work even more important… Everyone must follow the quarantine rules.
“Infection tracking becomes more important, and we are considering whether we must also have stricter test regimes for everyone who comes to Norway,” she told NRK.
She added that the authorities are considering several measures.
The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) is now monitoring the tests taken to see if the mutation is more widespread in Norway.
