Shops and shopping centers in Oslo Municipality will be allowed to reopen again from Thursday, City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) announced at a press conference on Wednesday.

Since March 2, all stores in Oslo have been closed, with the exception of, among other things, grocery stores, pharmacies, kiosks, and liquor stores.

Shopping malls have been closed even longer – since late January.

“We are starting step 2 of the reopening plan. Shops and shopping centers can reopen in Oslo – with very strict infection control measures.

“There will be strict rules for the number of customers and distance,” Johansen said at the press conference.

“I’m very happy about this. They also had to close down two times in 2020,” he said.

Kindergartens and primary schools

Kindergartens, primary schools, and junior high schools in Oslo will operate at the “yellow” level from May 10.

The relief takes place just over a month after the “red” level was introduced in schools and kindergartens, on April 14.

It has now been decided that the “yellow” will apply from May 10.

“It is a great relief that we can give children and young people a more normal end to the school year,” Johansen said.
