Oslo’s chief infection control physician did not want to allow gatherings of ten people in private homes. But the City Council ignored him and introduced some relief on Tuesday.

With the new corona rules, the City Council has lifted the ban on more than two visitors to private homes. Instead, it is now forbidden to have more than ten people in private homes.

This also applies to gardens, backyards, and other patios in connection with private homes.

It appears that chief infection control physician Frode Hagen recommended setting a limit of a maximum of five visitors.

Wanted to set the limit at five guests

“New infection control recommendations should be introduced a step between a maximum of two and ten guests in private homes. The most obvious solution is to set a limit of a maximum of five visitors, which is relief in the gradual opening strategy, and fully harmonized with national recommendations until after May 17,” the recommendation noted.

But the City Council did not follow the recommendation.

The City Council “cannot see it as proportionate to maintain such an intrusive ban, even if the number of guests is increased to five indoors,” the City Council stated.
