No nightlife for the next couple of weeks
To guard the Faroe Islands against the highly contagious UK mutant Covid-19 strain, we must endure a few more weeks of restrictive measures until a sufficient number of people have been vaccinated.
So said Prime Minister Bárður á Steig Nielsen today as he announced a revised set of Covid restrictions.
Here are the key points:
- Nightlife establishments (bars, nightclubs and restaurants) are again required to close at 10pm until 17 January.
- All non-essential international travel is discouraged.
- We should limit our social interactions and stay within our own social bubble to the extent possible.
- Anyone feeling even mild symptoms is urged to get tested immediately.
A more detailed list of restrictive guidelines is available here.
The Prime minister added that further restrictions may be introduced should the Covid situation worsen.
