Bodø Municipality is planning a gradual reopening of the community. Schools and kindergartens will return to the “yellow” level on Monday, the crisis management team has decided.

On Wednesday, local authorities will decide whether the local regulations on one-to-one services introduced on March 18 will be repealed, a press release from the Municipality states.

This means that, for example, hairdressers could get to reopen their businesses. 

“This is a step-by-step reopening that we are doing because the people of Bodø have been good. Now, we have far lower infection rates than we had in the period before Easter,” Mayor Ida Pinnerød said.

She emphasized that people still have to comply with national measures.


“But as the situation in Bodø is now, we can ease the strictest local measures,” she added.

In the last 24 hours, no new cases of COVID-19 have been registered in the municipality, according to Bodø health manager Stian Rasmussen.

Due to Easter, there has been lower testing activity, but 361 people have still been tested in the period from and including Wednesday, March 31 to and including Monday, April 5.
