Covid-19 mass testing before offshore travel will be stopped from 1 July 2021
Effective from 1 July, the mandatory Covid-19 mass testing at our heliports will be stopped. Infection pressure has been declining for a long time, but with significant outbreaks of infection in different parts of the country. Overall, the infection ratio has fallen to level 2 on the Norwegian Institute of Public Health's risk level system. This makes it possible to stop mass testing. We assess the infection situation on an ongoing basis. If the level of infection increases again, it will be considered to resume mass testing.
