The reopening of Norway can start from Friday, the Norwegian Directorate of Health recommends. That means, among other things, the abolition of the national alcohol serving ban.
Last week, the Norwegian government presented its reopening plan, which consists of four steps. Step 1 consists of easing the measures that were introduced before Easter.
“The Norwegian Directorate of Health believes it is necessary to uphold the national measures in the future, but it is now possible to phase out the measures that were introduced before the Easter holidays,” the Directorate noted.
The government will hold a press conference on Tuesday about the corona situation. The Norwegian Directorate of Health has sent its professional advice to the government ahead of the press conference.
The first step in the reopening plan involves the following:
- Up to 5 guests to be allowed in private homes.
- Events that only gather people from one municipality can be carried out.
- Alcohol serving alongside until 10 PM to be allowed.
- The distance recommendation is changed back to 1 meter.
- Up to 100 people to be allowed at indoor events, such as cultural and sports events, conferences, and similar places where everyone sits in fixed designated places.
