Labor Party (AP) leader Jonas Gahr Støre did not follow the City Council’s anti-infection decree in Oslo. He drove on the subway without a face maks on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Nettavisen reported on Støre’s trip on the subway between Vinderen station and Majorstuen. 

A fellow passenger took a picture of the AP’s leader without a face mask. 

Støre told Nettavisen that he had changed into rainwear before he left home, and therefore didn’t notice that he did not wear a face mask before going on the subway.

“Therefore, I found a seat where I could keep a sufficient distance from others,” he said. 

Støre informed VG that he has now obtained a pack of face maks that he is keeping in his raincoat.

In Oslo, face masks are required in public transport, especially during congestion and when it is not possible to keep a distance of one meter from others.

  1. … or maybe Jonas Støre is opting to follow the Swedish arbeidsparteis – Social Democrats’ – medical policy of “herd immunity” and does not agree with the masking-on-public-transportation request/policy.
