But many health authorities tell us they share similar challenges in broadening their Covid-19 testing capabilities to include children.
Helena Ernlund, Region Dalarna's doctor specialising in infectious diseases, tells Radio Sweden that demand is outstripping supply.
For a week now the biggest problem is that the public demand for testing exceeds the laboratories abilities to run tests."
In addition to the problem of laboratory testing capacity, many regions report a heavy burden on primary healthcare centres, and delays for children over-13 to access booking tests online due to the need of electronic IDs.
Press play to hear more on how Sweden's 21 regions are coping with the recommendation to test all children of school age.
Which regions are testing children for Covid-19?
Blekinge - Yes, for the over 16's. Discussion on how to test under 16's is underway.
Dalarna - Yes. Pre-school and upwards, but due to a shortage of test slots recommending younger children hold off from being tested.
Gotland - Yes, but only if it is deemed necessary by medical staff for under 16's. Working towards offering mass testing for all kids.
Gävleborg - Yes, all kids over the age of one can be tested if parents judge it necessary.
Halland, Norrbotten & Örebro - Yes. From pre-school age (6 years old) and upwards.
Jämtland Härjedalen - Yes. Self-testing for all kids, but kids over 13 need their own electronic ID to get the tests, which has caused delays.
Jönköping, Västra Götaland & Skåne - Yes, for all kids from pre-school age and upwards. For younger kids, if there is a medical need.
Kalmar - Yes, all children can be tested if parents judge it necessary.
Kronoberg - Yes, schoolchildren can be tested. For younger children contact medical staff as the test can be distressing, painful and may not be motivated.
Stockholm - Yes. For under 13's parents can take kids to a mobile testing centre. For over 13's they need an electronic ID to order a self-test. Recommend kids in pre-school don't get tested, but stay at home.
Sörmland - Yes, for children over 16. Decision to come soon for under 16's.
Uppsala - Yes, for kids in Year 4 and upwards.
Västerbotten - Yes, but only if it is deemed necessary by medical staff for under 13's. Over 13's can get tested if they have symptoms. Working towards offering more time slots so younger kids with mild symptoms can get tested.
Västmanland - Yes, currently for all children, but will soon introduce a lower limit of 6 years of age.
Östergötland - Yes, over 13's can order a test online, for younger children if it is medically necessary, depending on the level of spread in the region.
