Bærum Municipality is tightening its anti-coronavirus measures after increased infection rates. Among other things, residents will now have to provide their address in order to be allowed to drink beer at venues that serve alcohol.
On Thursday afternoon, the Municipality decided to make changes to the local corona measures.
The infection situation in Bærum is worsening, and on Thursday, 36 new cases of infection were registered.
The Municipality’s shopping centers will remain open, but with, among other things, closed restaurants, which are allowed to operate as takeaways.
New rules for gyms, bars, restaurants…
Gyms will also remain open, but only for individual training. Only people living in Bærum are allowed to go to the gyms.
Alcohol-serving is still allowed, but only people living in Bærum will be allowed to visit the bars.
“Guests must provide their name, telephone number, and address or municipality of residence, which must be Bærum. We think this is preferable rather than shutting down completely,” municipal director Bente Herdlevær told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
