On Wednesday, Prime Minister Erna Solberg revealed details of the government’s reopening plan for Norwegian society.

“We will do this step by step and in a controlled manner. Once we have opened up one step, we will generally wait for three weeks before moving on to the next step. 

“When we see that it is safe and the infection does not increase again, we will move on to the next step in the plan,” Solberg said

The government’s reopening plan consists of four steps and contains an overview of which measures can be facilitated in each step.

The first step is to return to the level of measures that were in force before March 25, when new national measures were introduced to deal with the rising infection in the weeks before Easter.

New assessment

Solberg noted that, in the upcoming weeks, the government would consider whether all or part of the national measures that were implemented on March 25 can be reversed.

She added that there is a need to see the results of each step before moving on to the next. 

Solberg says the situation will be assessed based on three points:

  1. The infection situation.
  2. The capacity in the health service.
  3. The vaccination process.
