Nor­way tigh­tens tra­vel rest­ric­tions and requi­res tests for tra­vel­lers to Spits­ber­gen

Many count­ries have intro­du­ced rest­ric­tions on tra­vel­ling in an attempt to keep the new ver­si­ons of the Sars­Cov-2 (coro­na) virus under con­trol. Nor­way has also had a num­ber cases with the­se new viru­s­es recen­ty and tigh­tens in on regu­la­ti­ons for inter­na­tio­nal traf­fic to redu­ce fur­ther spre­a­ding, accor­ding to a press release by the Nor­we­gi­an govern­ment, which is also available in Eng­lish (click here).

Corona-quarantine, Spitsbergen

Appli­es to all of Spits­ber­gen: Coro­na-qua­ran­ti­ne.
Com­pul­so­ry coro­na test­ing has now addi­tio­nal­ly been intro­du­ced (pho­to com­po­si­ti­on).

Sin­ce today (Fri­day, 01 Janu­ary) ever­y­bo­dy who tra­vels to Spits­ber­gen has to be tes­ted within 24 hours befo­re tra­vel­ling. This has to be done befo­re tra­vel­ling, hence on the main­land and not after arri­val.

Rapid tests are also accept­ed, acor­ding to Knut Sel­mer, medi­cal doc­tor at the hos­pi­tal in Lon­gye­ar­by­en, who tal­ked to Sval­bard­pos­ten.
