Norway lifts travel restrictions to Finland, Iceland and a Swedish island

OSLO, June 12 (Reuters) - Norway will allow travel to and from Finland, Iceland and the Swedish island of Gotland from June 15, but is maintaining existing travel restrictions imposed on mainland Sweden due to its higher level of COVID-19 cases.

“If we were to lift restrictions at the same time, we risk losing control and, in the worst case, having to reimpose invasive measures again,” Prime Minister Erna Solberg told reporters.

Denmark, Finland and Norway have lifted some of the travel restrictions they imposed to slow the novel coronavirus pandemic, but they have kept most of the ones imposed on Sweden, the richest and most populous of the Nordics. (Reporting by Terje Solsvik, editing by Gwladys Fouche)
