Coronavirus: Norway to close all its airports, as well as seaports
Norway announced that it will close its ports and airports and tighten its land border controls starting Monday, due to the Covid-19 epidemic, although exemptions will be made for Norwegians returning from abroad as well as for goods, Aviation24 reports.
“We’ve decided to shut our airports, close our ports and implement extensive controls along our border. We are doing this with the aim of protecting ourselves from the epidemic,” said Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at a press conference.
“This implies in practice that no one can enter Norway, that is to say that we can show people back when they arrive at the border unless they have a very specific reason for coming here“, she said.
The measure will be effective as of Monday at 08:00.
