Cyprus on Norway’s list of countries eased of Covid-19 restrictions

Norway has said that Cyprus and six regions of Sweden and one in Denmark will be eased of Covid-19 restrictions providing for a 10-day quarantine on all people arriving from these countries.

Norway on Thursday announced it will impose a 10-day quarantine on all people arriving from Italy and Slovenia from September 5 due to rising numbers of coronavirus cases in those countries. Restrictions will also apply to the Vatican and San Marino.

To try to prevent a domestic resurgence of the coronavirus, Norway quarantines all travellers from countries with more than 20 confirmed new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population during the past two weeks.

It also advises Norwegians against travelling to those nations.

With its latest additions to the list, Norway will be restricting travel from most countries, only allowing quarantine-free travel from EU countries Cyprus, Hungary, Slovakia, Finland and the Baltic states and parts of Denmark and Sweden.
