Visitors to shops and department stores should come alone. 31/04/2021: On March 6; several trade restrictions began to apply to reduce congestion and the risk of infection spreading.

Stores; malls and shopping centres must also take measures to ensure that visitors come one by one. Children and people in need of support do not have to shop alone.; 26/04/2021: As the spread of infection during the spring was extensive; with a very high burden on health care as a result; the Public Health Agency's previous assessment was that the changes could take effect no earlier than 3 May.

New studies show that pregnant women have a higher risk of becoming seriously ill with covid-19; which can mean an increased risk of the baby being born prematurely and other serious complications. The Swedish Public Health Agency therefore wants to strengthen and repeat its recommendations that pregnant women should be extra careful. This applies to all pregnant women and especially at the end of pregnancy from pregnancy week 36. - Now we know that there is a higher risk for pregnant women and we want to avoid that they need intensive care because in the worst case it can have serious consequences for both the mother and the child; says Anders Tegnell; state epidemiologist at the Swedish Public Health Agency. The risk of serious illness can also increase in combination with other risk factors such as high blood pressure; diabetes; and obesity. All pregnant women should generally be extra careful to follow the recommendations that exist to keep their distance; be careful with hand hygiene; as well as avoid social contacts outside a small circle and avoid congestion.; 09/02/2022 As from 9 February; only patients; care users; and health and elderly care staff are recommended to get tested.;

01/12/2021 Indoor events with more than 100 participants who do not use vaccination certificates must; according to the proposal; take special infection control measures. Participants must have a designated seat. Groups must keep a distance of at least 1 meter from other groups. The number of participants in the group must not exceed 8 people.

19/11/2020: the Government gave the Swedish Public Health Agency the opportunity to issue regulations prohibiting visits to special housing for the elderly (social care homes for disabled and elderly) if necessary to prevent the spread of covid-19. Prohibition may apply to a county or parts of a county; 25/02/2021: Both the number of cases of the disease and the number of deaths have decreased among people living in special housing for the elderly; as the proportion who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 has increased. This opens up the possibility for residents to meet relatives up close in their own home; and to avoid a restraining order. The Public Health Agency of Sweden now estimates that those who are vaccinated with two doses can return to a slightly more normal life when it comes to contacts with other people; two weeks after the second dose. Those who are vaccinated no longer need to be as careful as before in their own home. For example; it is possible to meet symptom-free relatives and to get physically close to them; 26/04/2021: Vaccination coverage is now good in special homes and in the home care service. Many older people outside these environments have also received their first dose. At the same time; the spread of infection continues at a high level with a burden on care and nursing. Adjustments of measures after vaccination will therefore take place step by step. A person who has been vaccinated with a first dose and allowed three weeks to pass can meet people from a few different households and even indoors. Spending time with people outside their smaller circle can mean that people both with and without risk factors as well as vaccinated and unvaccinated are included in the contact. When vaccination of people in elderly care and their household contacts; as well as staff in health and care who work close to this risk group; has been carried out; joint activities in special housing and day care can be resumed; provided that recommended routines are followed. Vaccinated people in elderly care can make visits outside the home; for example to relatives and to service facilities. In order to protect residents and reduce the risks associated with any travel; it is important that all persons follow the national general guidelines .

The government urges everyone to follow the general guidelines to protect those who are most at risk of becoming seriously ill. Since 1 April; older people and risk groups have lived with sharper recommendations than others in society. They have been urged to limit their physical contacts; avoid public transport and avoid shopping in stores. But the Public Health Agency has decided to remove the special recommendations. From now on; everyone will be covered by the same general advice. The change is made; among other things; with regard to the mental and physical health of these groups.
