The City Council of Bergen has, on the advice of FHI, chosen to extend the infection control measures until the coming Tuesday, 22nd September.
On Wednesday morning, the City Council had a meeting with the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH), from where the recommendation came.
“The situation is still confusing, and it is critical to limit further spread of infection”, says City Councilor Roger Valhammer.
The recommendations for home offices and the use of face masks on public transport apply until next Tuesday.
“An extension of the measures for a few days will be less intrusive towards the city’s population and business community than if the outbreak escalates again and new and possibly more intrusive measures must be introduced again”, says the city council leader.
