Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre stated that existing infection control measures would likely be relaxed this week.
In an interview with Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK), Støre said that he wants to relax the measures that were introduced to slow down the spread of omicron infection in society.
He is in agreement with government partner and Minister of Finance Trygve Slagsvold Vedum (SP), who spoke about abolishing the national alcohol-serving ban in the country’s restaurants this weekend.
“If professional advice allows for it, then we will make the adjustments that we can,” Støre noted.
“We must have stray in control through the increase in infection – that is what the measures aim to achieve – at the same time as we introduce as much relief as possible for people, especially children and young people,” he added.
