This is a message from Vinje municipality – 13.3.2020:
The municipality doctor in Vinje orders the tourism industry in Vinje to close serving, restaurants, hotels, accommodation and skiing from 13.03.2020 until after Easter.
The authorities encourages owners of leisure homes in the municipality not to use these during this period. One asks all owners of leisure homes to stay in their homes. We do not wish travelers with possible infection to the area. This is to prevent further spread of the Covid-19 (corona) virus, locally, nationally and internationally.
The decision is a follow-up to national guidelines and the Anti-Infection Act.
If a quarantine is imposed in the home municipality, it must be respected. Violations of quarantine rules may result in prosecution.
Vinje is a small municipality and has great pressure on the health care system during the day.
Municipal health services are not dimensioned for the national crisis we now face.
