The Scandinavian country began the gradual lifting of sanitary restrictions before the summer as the situation improved, but repeatedly delayed full normalization.

The time has come to return to a normal life, to revive, so to speak, as we did before the pandemic hit us

TO Starting at 4pm on Saturday, the number of people participating in public and private events will no longer be limited, the subway distance rule will be lifted, as will the few restrictions still in place at bars and restaurants.

Now the handshake will also be possible. There will also be no more entry restrictions on Norwegian territory for residents of the European Economic Area (EEA)., the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.

The official recommendation to avoid travel abroad, which is valid for many countries, will disappear on October 1.

Among the very few restrictions that will be maintained will be the obligation to isolate oneself in the event of a positive coronavirus test, under penalty of a fine.

The use of the mask in public transport can be locally recommended or mandatory “in case of need”.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, only 850 deaths from covid-19 have been registered in Norway, which has a population of just over 5 million inhabitants.
