Passengers on an AIDA Cruises liner berthed in southern Norway were cleared out of a 24-hour quarantine after two of them tested negative for Coronavirus/COVID-19, Norwegian officials announced on Tuesday, March 3.

On Monday, officials in Haugesund learned that 2 passengers on AIDAaura had contact with someone a week ago who tested positive for Coronavirus. The infected was not among the ~1200 passengers on AIDAaura. The two cruisers were disembarked and tested for COVID-19 while the other remained blocked on the ship.
