  • After two years, from today, Covid-19 is no longer categorised as 'a danger to society and a threat to public health' in Sweden.

  • This means in practice that anyone who suspects they have the virus are no longer obliged to seek medical attention. The requirement for infection tracing also disappears today as does the requirement for quarantine or isolation.

  • The Public Health Agency says the pandemic is still going on and the recommendation for people in Sweden to vaccinate themselves against the virus remains in place, and that those with symptoms should stay at home.
