The sun is shining in several places in the country. At Rådhuskaia in Oslo, hundreds of people are queuing to take the ferry to the islands in the Oslo Fjord.

Press officer Sofie Bruun in Ruter asks people to reconsider Saturday’s sea bathing plans.

“There are so many other good bathing places that come to mind,” she told newspaper VG.

Bruun says that the ferries’ capacity has already been reduced due to infection control measures. The ferries run between the piers and the islands until 9:45 PM on Saturday night.

No extra ferries

Bruun says that the last ferry to the city leaves at 9:45 PM and emphasizes that it is important for people to remember that.

“We will not put in any extra ferries, and we will not drive anyone to the islands after 9:15 PM,” she said.

“We work to get everyone home again, but not until late at night.”

Earlier this week, mandatory home office and the alcohol-serving stop at midnight in Oslo were lifted. In connection with the relief, City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) issued a clear recommendation to residents to avoid unnecessary travel via public transport.
