Health councilor Robert Steen (AP) in Oslo is afraid that the control of passengers at Gardermoen is not good enough. He fears potential consequences for Oslo.

The police must check everyone who comes by plane to Norway, but Steen told newspaper VG that he had received reports that this does not always happen.

This applies, among other things, to passengers on a flight from Copenhagen on Friday, who did not have to go through a check and who did not receive information about COVID-19 and the quarantine rules.

“In the worst case, this can mean that we will not reduce the infection in Oslo and that we have to extend the measures at Christmas,” he said.

Police attorney Thor Larsen in the Eastern Police District told the newspaper that no deviations were reported on Friday, which means that all aircraft, including that from Copenhagen, must have been checked. 

At the same time, he could not rule out that a mistake has been made.
