  • Use of mobile accommodations, such as a tent or camper van or similar is not allowed due to the requirement for private hygiene facilities and travel restrictions inherent in quarantine.
  • Group accommodations are also prohibited during quarantine (hostels, hiking lodges, fishing lodges etc.), that is any accommodations where persons who do not share a home sleep in the same room, use the same hygiene facilities and/or cooking facilities. 
  • Guesthouses and home-based accommodations offered for use by individuals in quarantine must offer private hygiene facilities for each unit in use for quarantine and those in quarantine in such accommodations may not use any shared spaces, such as lounges, kitchens etc.
