Coronavirus - current restrictions

Updated September 24, 2021
 

From September the 24th at 16:00 there are no restrictions regarding Covid-19 disease anymore.

Keep the following in mind:

  • Stay at home if you are unwell/ have newly-arisen respiratory tract symptoms (fever, cough, difficulties in breathing, headache, lethargy, loss of sense of smell and taste, muscle aches, sore throat, etc.)
  • You should be tested for coronavirus if you have newly arisen respiratory tract symptoms. This can be done at a municipal test station.
  • If you are a pupil or student and are being tested instead of quarantine as directed by the municipality / school / educational institution, you will receive information about the test regimen that replaces the quarantine. Some municipalities will hand out rapid antigen tests for self-testing at home. If you have symptoms or the rapid antigen test is positive, you must take a confirmatory PCR test at a municipal test station and go into isolation.
  • You will find practical information about how, where and when you can be tested on your municipality's website. See the section "About your coronavirus test" on the website of FHI.no 

Who to call when you are sick:

Everyone arriving in Norway from abroad, with the exception of those arriving from green countries/regions in Europe, must go into quarantine, although there are some exemptions. If you are travelling or intend to travel, it is important that you keep up-to-date with the rules that apply to you. We advice you strongly to read the information on the website of FHI.no

Before you come to Geilo, please consider the following:

  • Do I feel unwell?
  • Am I in quarantine/Isolation?

If the answers to any of these questions is yes, do not visit our resort. We are completely dependent on people that have symptoms, feel unwell or are in quarantine, stay at home so we can offer everybody a fantastic holiday. 

If the answer to both the questions above is no, we ask that you follow these now familiar rules:

  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly. An alcohol-based disintectant can be a good alternative. 
  • Cough into the crook of your elbow or a paper tissue 

What should you do if you get symptoms or fall ill when you are at our resort this winter?

  • Isolate yourself in a separate room if possible
  • Seek medical advice. Ask for help from the employees where you are staying. 
  • Do not use public transport
  • Cover your mouth and nose or keep 2 meters away from others

If you have anything to report, contact your doctor or representatives for the resort.
