Corona virus: – Corona quarantine in Oslo prison

– It was an employee who was diagnosed with infection this weekend – and therefore the department is in quarantine. These are 17-18 prisoners and six employees, says regional director Stig Storvik at the Prison and Probation Service to Dagbladet.

He says that they calculate the quarantine for ten days from the last time the employee was at work, which was on 9 September.

– All inmates have been tested, and all have tested negative. We have therefore not detected any infection so far, says Storvik.

He adds that they will conduct another test round, just in case.

– How does quarantine work in practice?

– They are not completely excluded from the community, but we avoid that they interact with other inmates so that they are not in danger of infecting them. When it comes to leave and visits, we make individual assessments, says the regional director.

He says that the ward that is affected is completely separated from the other wards at Oslo prison.

– It makes it easier to handle, he says and adds:

– We work closely with the health department in the prison and the district superintendent, and feel that we have control over this situation.
