What happens after test?
Quarantine and isolation
Who should be in quarantine and isolation and how it should be carried out.
Events and social gatherings
Even though there are many restrictions, it is possible to get together at home and outside the home for celebrations, notable occasions or if you want to gather for private events.
Some might wonder how many people can gather in one place, how to go about serving food at private events and whether grandparents can spend time with their grandchildren.
Do you know who your close contacts are?
The quarantine regulations and infection control advice will be updated as new information becomes available. For travel abroad, it is important to familiarise yourself with the current advice for the area you want to travel to, and which regulations apply when you return to Norway.
