I think they are on the point of doing the same here in South Wales. But what happens if lots of people stay protected for, say, a month, then emerge to normal life? Will the virus have simply passed by, or will it be there and waiting for them?
I think that they are mainly trying to delay the spread, and will resume normal things gradually.
But for now, the internet in Norway will have a heavy load until at least Easter.
Many, many things are now closed until further notice. Gyms and training centres; providers of personal services, such as nail care, tattoos & piercings, massage, etc.; swimming pools, sports centres, all closed. Also restaurants and bars are only allowed to be open if they can maintain at least 1 metre 'social distancing' and prepare individual portions. No buffets or salad bars. All sports and culture arrangements are now cancelled.
No visits to care homes or retirement homes.
I don't know what, if anything, the government will do to support the businesses that are forced to close because of this.
