  1. Face masks are recommended when distance cannot be maintained on public transportation, in shops and other places where people gather.
  1. People who come to Tromsø from municipalities with higher infection rates are recommended to be tested on day 5 after arrival. Possibly earlier for short stays.

  2. The first 10 days after arrival in Tromsø it is recommended to:

- Limit social activities
