The Norwegian Institute of Public Health submits an assessment of the infection situation in the EU, EEA and Schengen countries to the Government every week. The Government decides which countries and regions are covered by the requirements for quarantine upon arrival in Norway.
Last week, the Government decided to introduce a category for yellow countries. As a result, all countries where quarantine upon arrival is not required are yellow.
