The corona certificate will likely be used for hospital visits. It can’t discriminate against the elderly with low digital competence, the Norwegian Ombudsman for the Ageing pointed out on Wednesday.
“The paper version of the certificate must be made available. People should have the opportunity to order it through regular mail or to get it at the GP,” the Ombudsman suggested.
In addition to use during hospital visits and the like, the Ombudsman believes that one should consider whether the corona certificate makes it unnecessary to quarantine upon entering Norway after trips abroad.
The Ombudsman believes that everyone who meets the conditions for obtaining the certificate should have free and easy access to it.
Almost half a million Norwegians over the age of 60 are “non-digital,” which means that they do not use computers, smartphones, and the internet or have weak digital skills.
