COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Norway is easing up some of its restrictions by removing a ban on serving alcohol after midnight and allowing crowds of up to 600 people at outdoor events.
Prime Minister Erna Solberg says “this is not a total release but a new phase in the strategy to maintain control of the corona infection.”
The Scandinavian country had a previous limit of 200 people at indoor events. Abid Raja, the minister in charge of sports, says the changes apply Oct. 12 and “this will please many soccer fans.”
Norway has 13,914 confirmed cases and 274 deaths.
