Haugalandet municipalities introduce mandatory face mask use

Mandatory use of face masks is introduced until January 7 in the municipalities of Karmøy, Haugesund, Tysvær, Vindafjord, Sveio, Etne, Bokn, and Utsira in Haugalandet.

The regulation applies to public transport, taxis, shops, and shopping centers whenever people can not keep enough distance from others, the municipalities stated in a joint press release.

The regulation does not apply to children under the age of twelve or persons who cannot wear face masks for medical reasons.

The municipalities also recommend that household members of corona-infected people remain in quarantine for seven days after infection is detected in their homes.

The overall infection situation related to respiratory diseases in Haugalandet is demanding, and there is considerable pressure on the region’s hospital, emergency room, health service, and school/ kindergarten capacity.
