A regulation adopted on Friday will make it possible for municipalities to use corona certificates to provide relief to fully vaccinated people who have had the coronavirus in the last six months or have tested negative for COVID-19 in the last 48 hours.

People do not have to be vaccinated to use the certificate, the government emphasized on Friday. The prerequisite for municipalities to start using the certificate is that they pass a decision on infection control measures.

“In addition, the municipalities must offer free quick tests to those who have not been vaccinated. The events and companies that will use the corona certificate should use a verification app to verify if the certificates are valid. Children and young people under the age of 16 do not need a corona certificate,” Minister of Health Ingvild Kjerkol (AP) noted.

Tromsø is among the municipalities that have announced that they are ready to use the corona certificates but have been waiting for the government to clarify the regulations.
