The one-meter rule and other domestic corona measures could be removed in September, the Norwegian government told the newspaper VG.

“As things are now, it (note: the removal of measures) will be when everyone has received two doses at the end of September. Then it will be possible to live normally, without the one-meter rule and other domestic restrictions.

“However, we will have to uphold increased preparedness in our society for new threatening virus variants, and we must be able to introduce measures, trace and stop the spread quickly,” Minister of Health Bent Høie (H ) told VG.

Back to normal?

This means that people in Norway will probably live a more normal life during the autumn, as it was before the corona pandemic.

“Yes, it will take place during this autumn, probably at the end of September, maybe even a little faster if we get more vaccines,” Høie said.

Høie says vaccination will have higher priority than infection numbers in the assessment of the full reopening of Norway.
