Why Norway Is Banning its Residents From Their Own Vacation Homes

The Norwegian government has banned residents from retreating to their rural, vacation homes as they self-isolate during the COVID19 pandemic. Those that do will face a nearly $2,000 fine, or 15 days in jail. This ban is in place because rural health infrastructure cannot handle the influx of residents if they were to arrive and start testing positive for the novel coronavirus.
