Most people who develop coronavirus disease (COVID-19) only suffer mild symptoms, but some people can become very ill. This is why we are trying to slow the spread of infection across the country. Some people have been asked by their doctor to stay at home.
Anyone who is diagnosed with COVID-19 must be completely isolated from other people through so-called ‘home isolation’.
Anyone who has not been diagnosed with COVID-19, but may have been exposed to infection, must go into ‘quarantine’.
People arriving in Norway from many other countries must also go into ‘quarantine’.
If a doctor has told you that you have COVID-19 or if you are waiting for your test results, you must avoid all contact with other people so that you do not infect others.
- Home isolation means that you must be isolated from everyone else, including people you live with.
- You must not go out, you should remain in a room by yourself, eat in the room and not share towels with anyone else.
- If your condition deteriorates, contact a doctor by phone on 116 117. The doctor may also decide that you need to be isolated in hospital.
- Isolation lasts until your doctor tells you that you are infection-free.
If a doctor has told you that you are not ill, but that you have been exposed to infection, you must go into quarantine. The same applies if you are arriving in Norway from many other countries.
- You must stay at home or another suitable place, but home quarantine is not as strict as home isolation.
- Quarantine means you must reduce your contact with other people as much as possible, but you do not have to be completely isolated.
- You must not go to school or work, or do any other activities. You must not travel on public transport (bus, tram, underground, train, air or ferry), but you can go for walks on your own.
- If you start coughing, develop a throat infection or fever or experience difficulty breathing, it is important that you contact a doctor by phone on 116 117.
- The test for COVID-19 is free in Norway.
- Quarantine lasts for 10 days after you arrive in Norway or your most recent exposure to infection.
