Children and young people were strongly affected by the pandemic in the Faroes. Over 11,000 persons under the age of 20 had been infected by summer 2022 (korona.fo). Many children and young people suffered from COVID-19 restrictions that severely limited the opportunities for social, cultural, and educational activities in their everyday life.
