Norway will start to ease the measures imposed to limit the spread of new coronavirus after locking down early.

Schools, universities and technical colleges will start opening their doors from April 27, Prime Minister Erna Solberg said at a webcast press conference on Tuesday. Services that require personal contact, such as hairdressers and physiotherapists, can be resumed gradually, while restrictions on large sporting and cultural events will remain in place until June 15.
