      Found this. The ship is not one of those on the coastal voyage but an expedition ship that had been to Svalbard.
      Having been to Svalbard I know that strict precautions are taken as it is prisitne environment with a population of mostly scientifc researchers. Passengers are told what they can and cannot do and are not allowed to wander from a set boundary. I do hope that as a result of the ships visit Covid hasnt reached there.

        Hurtigruten were one of the first lines to recommence operation. It's obviously not going too well!

              41 people admitted to hospital in Tromso as a result - in one day!

              It doesn't seem to be getting a lot of cover in the news - I expected much worse from the press & telly.

                The proposed RUK cruises on the ship are cancelled I read in the Telegraph.
