After just over a week of step two of Norway’s reopening plan, Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) states that everything is going according to plan.
It has been eight days since Norway entered step two of its plan to reopen Norwegian society.
“So far, it is going very well,” Solberg told newspaper Aftenposten.
Each step lasts three weeks – if everything goes according to plan. Thus, Norway is on its way to start step three as planned on June 17 or 18.
In the next step, among other things, the national alcohol-serving restriction (until midnight) will be lifted, and it will be allowed to have 20 guests in private homes. In addition, up to 1,000 people will be able to gather at indoor events.
Three key factors
Three factors impact the pace of the reopening: the number of infected people, the capacity of the health service, and the number of vaccinated Norwegians.
Nearly 1.8 million Norwegians have now received the first dose of the corona vaccine. Furthermore, out of the total, 1.2 million have been fully vaccinated.
In addition, corona infection is declining in almost all counties.
