A total of 63% of Norwegians will stay at home during the Easter holidays, while 29% will not be spending Easter at home. Many are still unsure of their plans, Opinion’s corona monitor survey shows.

The proportion of those who will spend Easter at home has increased in March. However, the number is still below last year’s level, the survey shows. 

In 2020, as many as nine out of ten Norwegians said they would spend Easter at home.

“For some, Easter is already in full swing. Some are in the cabin, while several are sitting on the sofa at home,” senior adviser Nora Clausen in Opinion noted.

She pointed out that three out of ten respondents are still unsure of their plans for Easter. 

Confusing rules

That may be related to the fact that many people find the corona rules and guidelines confusing. Now, four out of ten people say they find it difficult to know if they follow guidelines that apply to them at all times. 

On average, the share has been 36%, which is 3% higher than in March last year.

“It is a bit strange that a whole year of the pandemic and measures has made us more uncertain about the regulations… We are more uncertain now than when Norway closed down with the most intrusive measures in peacetime,” Clausen said.

A total of 6,300 Norwegians have been asked about their Easter plans this year and last year, and 63,000 people have been asked about their views on the corona measures.
