Vinmonopolet, the state-owned alcoholic beverage retailer, will reopen in the ten municipalities affected by the English variant of the coronavirus in Eastern Norway.
On Sunday, Minister of Health Bent Høie (H) announced that the decision to close 45 Vinmonopolet stores would be reversed.
“The government is continuously assessing whether there is a need for adjustment of the measures, and already now there will be some adjustments following advice from the Norwegian Directorate of Health and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI),” Høie said.
In addition, the government is changing which shops and outlets can be open, in addition to grocery stores, pharmacies and petrol stations.
Among others, the change affects outlets for pet food and other necessities for pets, stores for agricultural activities and animal production, and opticians.
