Oslo Conservatives want to open venues and services such as gyms, bars, shops, and restaurants to vaccinated residents as soon as possible.
“This Easter, the National Institute of Public Health announced that those vaccinated with the mRNA vaccines do not spread (the infection) further. That should mean that they can also move freely in society. It is a good way to start reopening the city,” group leader for the Oslo Conservatives (H), Anne Rygg, told newspaper Dagsavisen.
On Thursday, City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) told Dagsavisen that he supports a scheme with vaccine passes.
He further said that, in his view, it would be problematic to restrict the freedom of people who are well protected against the virus.
“These are difficult questions, but I still believe that being vaccinated must mean something,” Johansen said.
For the Conservatives, the main point of opening up society quickly for vaccinated people is to boost business activity.
“We have a health crisis, but we also have an economic crisis. Many places have been closed for a long time, especially in Oslo,” Rygg noted.
