The Directorate of Health recommends measures such as different working hours, the one-meter distance between collective passengers and extensive use of home office throughout the year.

This is written in a report from the Directorate of Health, which forms part of the basis for the government’s roadmap for reopening society.

It was VG who first mentioned the case on Friday.

In the year ahead, the TISK strategy (testing, isolation, infection detection, and quarantine) will replace many of the most far-reaching measures. But the Directorate of Health recommends that several measures be continued at least through 2020:

  • Differentiated working hours where possible to limit the number of public passengers during rush hour.
  • At least one-meter distance between passengers on buses, trains, ferries, and aircraft – possibly other contamination prevention measures.
  • At least one-meter distance between employees at workplaces. If employees are dependent on public transport, employers should arrange for a home office.
  • Audience restrictions on sports, music, arts, and cultural events. Wardrobe and locker room use is not recommended throughout 2020.
  • Infectious operation of malls and shops, with distance marking and frequent disinfection of surfaces.
  • Currently, the opening of universities and colleges is not recommended because there are often many students in a limited area. Many also rely on public transport to and from the study site.
  • When traveling domestically, travelers are encouraged to limit the number of stops. In the case of international travel, quarantine duty is currently maintained.
