The Norwegian Institute of Public Health has confirmed that 41 crew and 21 passengers (over two voyages) from the MS the Roald Amundsen have tested positive for COVID-19. The two voyages affected took place around Svalbard with boarding and disembarking in Tromsø occurred 17-24 July and 24-31 July.  Passengers from the MS Fridtjof Nansen and MS Spitsbergen in the Hurtigruten fleet have since been tested and all have received negative results.  The Hurtigruten line became the first to return to oceangoing cruises in mid-June following a three-month halt due to the pandemic.  Hurtigruten’s expedition voyages have been canceled until further notice and investigations into the Roald Amundsen outbreak are under way
