Report Covid-19 infection

Navigators and ports are required to immediately notify the health authorities in the event of an outbreak, or suspected outbreak, of coronavirus on board a vessel.

All vessels using SafeSeaNet Norway must verify that no infection has been detected or is suspected on board. If the ship is unable to verify this, notification must be given to Vardø Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) centre.

Notify Vardø VTS on +47 78 98 98 98, who will assist you in notifying the municipal doctor/municipal chief medical officer in the municipality of the vessel's first call to port.

Notify the Norwegian Institute of Public Health by telephone at +47 21 07 70 00 (during working hours) or +47 21 07 63 48 (Infectious Disease Control – Duty Medical Officer)

Notifications will be followed up by the health authorities.

The IHR Regulations allow the health authorities to implement appropriate measures against persons, including quarantine of vessels.
