If the infection situation in Oslo does not worsen, the strict rules for alcohol-serving and home office will be lifted on Monday, July 5.
The ban on russ celebrations in russ buses will also be removed, but the mandatory use of face masks on public transport and in taxis will stay in place, Oslo Health Councilor Robert Steen told TV 2.
Oslo plans to follow the national corona rules from Monday. The capital has lived with strict, local measures for a long time.
On Sunday, June 20, the national alcohol-serving stop was removed, but Oslo chose to uphold the stop of alcohol-serving at midnight until July 5.
During the crisis, Oslo stipulated that employees must have a home office as far as is practically possible. This requirement will be removed on Monday.
“The infection numbers are pointing downwards and have been for some time, thanks to the good efforts from the people of Oslo. An increasing proportion of people are being vaccinated, and by week 30, everyone over the age of 18 should be offered the first dose of the vaccine,” Steen said.
