The Norwegian Institute of Public Health does not recommend the use of face masks in Norway now. But if the situation changes, it may be necessary.
“If the epidemiological situation worsens significantly in a geographical area, the use of face masks as preventative measures should be reconsidered,” the Institute of Public Health wrote in the summary of a new review.
In the review, FHI emphasized that the World Health Organization (WHO) now encourages governments to recommend the use of face masks and masks in certain circumstances.
At the same time, FHI stated that it will not recommend the use of face masks in Norway in the current situation.
