In early February, the Norwegian government opened the door for nursing home residents to hug each other and a few visitors. Now, other elderly people who have been vaccinated should be able to do the same.
The Norwegian Directorate of Health recommends such an approach in its new assessment.
The assessment is that the recommendations for physical contact for elderly people living at home should be somewhat softer – if they have been vaccinated.
In addition, it is stated that elderly people living at home should be able to have physical contact with a limited number of unvaccinated people.
Furthermore, the Norwegian Directorate of Health now believes that vaccinated elderly people should not live as secluded as before.
