The Norwegian parliament (Storting) will close down next week and work digitally, Storting President Tone Wilhelmsen Trøen (H) stated.
“We do what we can to safeguard health and the parliament’s core business.
“We’re following the situation closely and will assess necessary measures on an ongoing basis,” Trøen says told news bureau NTB.
The Norwegian government introduced strict infection control measures for ten municipalities on Saturday, including the municipality of Oslo.
The new measures, which initially apply until January 31, apply to the municipalities of Enebakk, Frogn, Indre Østfold, Moss, Nesodden, Nordre Follo, Oslo, Vestby, Våler, and Ås.
The municipalities have just under one million inhabitants.
