The proportion of people in Oslo who wear face masks on trams, buses, and the metro when there are relatively few passengers present has decreased after Easter.
According to the newspaper Aftenposten, the use of face masks amounted to 100% on departures with many passengers in week 14. Throughout the year, the proportion has been 98% or higher.
Until week 12, the proportion was also relatively high (96%) on departures with fewer passengers. But since then, it has fallen sharply – to 91% in week 13 and 86% in week 14.
“We believe that a drop from 96% to 86% on departures with few travelers is not alarming in itself, but we will closely follow developments in the future,” press officer Knut-Martin Løken in Ruter told Aftenposten.
