Stockholm introduces home isolation for people living with someone with Covid-19

Stockholm has now introduced home isolation as a new measure to reduce the spread of corona, following recommendations a fortnight ago by the Public Health Agency.

One of the most common ways of getting infected is living with someone with the disease. Until now, those who may have been exposed to the virus, for instance by sharing a household with someone with a confirmed case have been recommended to work from home - but not everyone has a job where that is possible.

With the new rules regarding home isolation now being introduced as of Monday, these people can instead apply for financial support from the Social Insurance Agency for the period of their isolation.
