Norwegians with Swedish property threaten legal action over travel restrictions

A group of Norwegians are threatening a lawsuit against their home country over its Covid-19 travel restrictions that they say prevent them from visiting property they own in Sweden.

Right now, much of Sweden is deemed a high transmission area for the virus by Norwegian health officials, meaning travellers coming from Sweden are required to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in Norway.

Swedish Radio News reports that a group of Norwegian who own property in Sweden are seeking to pressure the Norwegian authorities to ease their restrictions. They have even planned to move forward with a lawsuit against them.
