The coronavirus and seagoing traffic

The corona (Covid 19) pandemic is currently affecting society to a great extent. We are getting many questions on how this is affecting seagoing traffic and ports.

The Norwegian government has introduced drastic measures in hopes of limiting the spread of the coronavirus. In the Norwegian Coastal Administration, we do what we can to prevent the spread of infection, while maintaining our emergency preparedness and other community-critical services.

Our Maritime Pilot Service and Vessel Traffic Service centres ‒ as well as digital reporting and information services ‒ are functioning normally. We continue to ensure a national emergency preparedness against acute pollution and important installations for safe navigation at sea.
