Home office is likely for the rest of the year, perhaps even beyond that, so as not to burden public transport, says health director Bjørn Guldvog.
“We have to avoid increased pressure on public transport when many return to commuter everyday life after the summer holidays,” Guldvog says to VG.
– It is still a reality that we are dependent that everyone not travel at the same time especially during rush hour in suburban areas. So the goal is for us to reduce travel to about half, he says.
This means that the Norwegian Directorate of Health still recommends that those who can use their home office some of the time. They must provide space for people who cannot work from home. The director of health points out that those who work at kindergartens and schools are dependent on public transport to get to and from work.
– “They are the ones who must be given priority on public transport during rush hour,” he says.
