Rising Matildas star Karly Roestbakken still has plans to join her Norwegian club next week but faces at least a 10-day quarantine period when she arrives in Oslo.
The 19-year-old Canberran signed a deal with leading Toppserien club LSK Kvinner for this year's season and hopes to move as soon as possible.
But escalating concerns over the global coronavirus pandemic could delay Roestbakken's arrival, with the Norwegian government introducing additional travel restrictions.
Prime Minister Erna Solberg has implemented a mandatory 14-day quarantine for any person coming from abroad, while from Monday, all airports and seaports will no longer allow foreigners who are not residents of Norway to enter the country.
"There are question marks around what is going to happen, at this point in time I'm still going over in about a week's time," Roestbakken said.
"Unless I'm told otherwise, I'm just going to follow procedures and listen to advice.
"When I go over there I'll have to be in quarantine for at least 10 days, so I'm still a bit unsure with everything that's happening.
"Whenever the team wants me over there, I'll come. I've just got to listen to what they've got to say."
Roestbakken is looking at training options in Australia if she's not able to travel in the foreseeable future.
One option could be training with the Future Matildas program in Sydney, which is led by her Young Matildas coach Leah Blayney.
The Australian national team has also had two friendlies against Canada and the United States cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
"It's the unknown, countries can shut their borders like that," Roestbakken said.
"There was a little bit of worry when we were traveling that we could get stuck, but you can't really control it. You've just got to do it.
"It's unfortunate our upcoming games against Canada and the USA have been cancelled, you can't help a world health crisis right now."
The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games are still expected to ahead as planned in July and August despite the rapid spread of coronavirus across the globe.
Roestbakken was part of Ante Milicic's 20-strong squad that earned qualification for the Games, but the Matildas coach will only be able to take 18 players to Japan.
She's hoping to use her experience in Norway to help boost her changes of being selected for Australia's Olympic squad, should the Tokyo Games go ahead.
"It's another box ticked off on my way to hopefully making the Olympic squad," Roestbakken said.
"It's always been my dream to go there, it would mean absolutely everything to me. I'm going to work hard to put my best foot forward for selection."
