Norway announced several changes to its corona rules from August 2. Here are the details

Several changes to Norway’s corona rules have been announced today. Among other things, adults will be able to participate in sports and cultural events across regions and districts.

The changes will take effect from August 2, the government stated during today’s press conference.

Social events for employees in companies and organizations will be defined as public events, as opposed to today, where they must follow the rules for private events. 

Entry restrictions exemptions will be made for minor children traveling to Norway together with parents considered exempted from the entry restrictions on other grounds than the corona certificate. Children traveling with parents who are exempted from entry restrictions based on a corona certificate have previously received such an exemption.

Passenger ferries sailing from a “green” country to a country with a quarantine obligation without taking new passengers on board shall not be regarded as public transport in accordance with the rules of the COVID-19 regulations on exemptions from entry quarantine for travelers with short stays in quarantine areas.

Young people under the age of 18 released from infection quarantine 

From August 16, children and young people under the age of 18 will mostly be exempted from the obligation to quarantine, the government announced.

However, adolescents must still be quarantined when they are members of the household or close contacts of the infected person, such as boyfriends or girlfriends.

“This increases the risk of infection in society, but it is a risk we are willing to take for children and young people to have as normal an everyday life as possible in the autumn,” Høie explained.

The exception from the infection quarantine only applies if testing is carried out in accordance with guidelines from the municipality.

“National guidelines will be prepared that will specify which test regime the municipalities should have. If the test regime is not followed, the person in question has a duty to quarantine,” the government noted.

For people over the age of 18, the current obligation to go into quarantine is maintained, but the municipalities are allowed to make exceptions and replace the quarantine with testing.
