AKIPRESS.COM - Children have begun returning to school in Norway, as primary schools reopen after the government claimed the coronavirus epidemic is under control, AFP reports.
One week after nursery schools, pupils aged six to 10 started returning to their school desks after six weeks of remote learning from home. Classes were however reduced to a maximum of 15 students.
Norway has progressively begun lifting restrictions imposed on 12 March to combat the spread of coronavirus.
Hair salons and dermatologists were also authorised to resume business.
Many measures remain in place, such as bans on sporting and cultural events, as well as physical distancing and hygiene recommendations.
