The government has no plans to impose restrictions on travel activity internally in Norway, Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) revealed on Wednesday.

“It wouldn’t be wise. Among other things, the location of where the infection appears is a bit random. 

We see that infected people without symptoms can travel without people finding out,” Solberg said in response to questions about whether it may be relevant to place restrictions on travel between municipalities with high and low levels of infection.

“There are no proposals for restrictions on domestic movement. I think that, for example, students should be allowed to come home to their mother for Christmas,” Solberg emphasized.

Solberg encouraged people in areas with an increase in infection to be motivated to support local infection control measures, as the national measures are now being eased.
