Since mid-July, the business agency in Oslo has closed seven nightclubs due to lack of infection control. A total of 14 locations have been closed during the pandemic.
“On the second floor, the police were not even able to get into the room due to so many people dancing in the middle of the floor”, writes the Oslo police in a report from one of the places that has been closed.
The police were actually called to the scene after a security guard was hit with a rock to the head, but reacted to the crowding and so many people in the club. Afterwards, the Alcohol Control Board and control has chosen to close the place down.
In total, the business authority in Oslo has decided to close 14 places due to a lack of infection control during the Coronavirus pandemic. In early July, it became known that seven places were closed. Since then, another seven places have been closed after being visited by the Alcohol Control Board and control inspectors, the agency informs NTB.
The reports from the bar inspectors testify to a number of violations of the health authorities’ regulations:
“Guests hugged each other on several occasions, and the guests did not seem to care much about complying with distancing rules or infection control measures,” reads one of the reports.
