  • The government is to give the Public Health Agency the possibility to re-introduce local bans on visits to care homes for the elderly, it announced Thursday.
  • Making the restrictions local would give extra flexibility rather than a national ban, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said.
  • Social Minister Lena Hallengren tells Radio Sweden that she doesn't think it was a mistake to lift the national visiting ban in September.
