From June 15th, Norwegians can travel on holiday to all countries in the Nordic Region, but only to areas where the infection rate is acceptable, states Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H).
For Sweden, today only Gotland satisfies the requirements.
– I realize this is a big disappointment for some. But the restrictions are based on objective criteria that are the same for everyone, Solberg said at the government’s press conference on the Coronavirus situation on Friday.
“The government also warns against traveling to Copenhagen. The situation will be assessed continuously, and the map of permitted areas will be updated at least every fortnight,” says Health Minister Bent Høie (H).
– “I hope that other areas in Sweden will soon have a controlled contagious situation that will allow travel to them,” he says.
