The Government proposes temporary pandemic law
The proposal is now being sent out for consultation.
Activities covered are:
• public gatherings and events
• venues for leisure or cultural activities
• shopping centres
• public transport
• use or lease of venues for private gatherings
It is also proposed that there should be a possibility to limit people's right to be in a public place and how large a group may be. The Government can give municipalities the right to decide on a ban on being in a particular place.
For very serious situations, it is proposed that there should be a possibility to decide on more far-reaching measures in order to prevent crowding. This may involve closing down, for example, shops, public transport or shopping centres.
