Minister of Health Bent Høie (H) confirms that the government is working to provide updated travel advice ahead of the winter holidays in week 8 and week 9.
“We would have liked to put the information out even faster, but due to the situation that has arisen, we need more time,” Høie noted at a press conference on Wednesday.
He reiterated that people should not plan leisure trips abroad at Easter or earlier.
The Minister of Health also explained why the government has not come up with a clearer definition of the notion of “unnecessary travel.”
“Sometimes it is very necessary to visit family elsewhere in the country, other times it is completely unnecessary.
“We want people to limit these trips, but each individual must decide for themselves. Most people are good at it,” Høie said.
