The local infection control measures in Bergen expire from midnight to Monday. Thus, the city will follow the national corona rules.

The infection pressure has not changed in recent days, and the City Council, therefore, believes there is no reason to extend the local regulations. 

On Sunday, only one new case of infection was registered in the city, which is the lowest number since New Year’s Eve, according to newspaper Bergens Tidende.

“A small step towards a more normal life”

“We have to live with the pandemic for a while longer, but from tomorrow we can take a small step towards a slightly more normal everyday life. 

“Now, it is important that everyone follows the national rules. We will keep the infection numbers down and get the vaccine numbers up,” City Council chief Roger Valhammer said.

Several changes

The local infection control regulations were introduced due to high infection pressure in Bergen on April 20. They were adjusted on May 3 and 12 and are set to expire on Sunday, May 30.

The changes mean, among other things, that the ban on having five guests will end and that indoor training matches and cups for children and young people under the age of 20 can take place.
