Covid 19 information

The situation regarding the Coronavirus “COVID-19” has our full attention and we prioritize the safety of our customers and employees very high. We are monitoring updates and guidance from relevant authorities and health organisations in the countries where we operate very closely.

To ensure the safety of our passengers and crew we are taking precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus onboard Norröna. 

- Information posters focused on hygienic measures to prevent the spread of the virus based on the World Health Organisation guidelines.

- Increased the frequency of preventive cleaning and disinfection of “Hand Contact Point Hotspots” such as door handles, access touch pads and telephones.

- Increased possibilities for hand wash and disinfection placed in public areas to ensure good hand hygiene.

- Staff is instructed to stay at home if they experience any of the Covid-19 symtoms. Or if they within the last 14 days, before symptoms occurred, stayed in areas* that are affected with a widespread transmission of Covid-19.

- If a passenger arrives at the ship and shows symptoms of Coronavirus or have a fever, then they will be refused boarding.

In advance of any journey, we encourage all travellers to follow latest guidance from the national health authorities.

Safe to Visit

In order to prepare our tourism industry for the return of visitors, Visit Faroe Islands has joined forces with the best medical capacities in the country to train our leisure and meetings industry in ensuring a safe stay for our
guests.

Companies and organisations that work in leisure and meetings tourism in the Faroe Islands have taken part in an educational course titled: “Corona Virus – Protection and Preventive Measures in the Tourism Industry.”

Staff that completed the course were given a “Safe to Visit” badge. The badge demonstrates that they have been taught to follow public Covid-19 health guidelines and have chosen to adopt the guidelines in their company or organisation.

The Faroese tourism industry is committed to doing everything in our power to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. However, we also need your help. We hope and expect that you will familiarise yourself with and follow the Covid-19 guidelines issued by the Faroese health authorities. 

How to minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19

  • Wash your hands and/or use hand sanitiser frequently – especially before and after touching surfaces that many others also touch, e.g. door handles and lift buttons, etc.
  • Cough or sneeze into your sleeve
  • Avoid shaking hands, kissing on the cheek and hugging
  • Limit physical contact
  • Keep a distance of at least one metre to other people who are not in your group and ask others to show consideration
