It’s official: Norwegian society to reopen on Saturday at 4 PM

The Norwegian society will reopen almost completely on Saturday, Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) announced at a press conference on the corona situation on Friday.

Both the Norwegian Directorate of Health and the National Institute of Public Health recommended the reopening, and the government is following their recommendation.

“I do not think everything will be exactly the same as it was before. I think that what we have been through will affect us for the rest of our lives, for better or worse,” Solberg said.

Thorough assessment

She pointed out that infection rates are falling, that hospital admissions have leveled off, and that the government expects large parts of the Norwegian population to be fully vaccinated within a few weeks. 

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) also believes that there is little risk that the epidemic will get out of control, cause a significant disease burden or threaten the health service’s capacity.

“This is the reason why the government, after a thorough assessment, has come to the conclusion that tomorrow at 4:.00 PM we will move on to a normal everyday life,” Solberg said.

This story is still being updated.
