  • After months of hybrid or remote learning, students will return to their classrooms this autumn, Education Minister Anna Ekström said on Tuesday.
  • Officials said the low spread of the virus allows for the return but Ekström warned schools to be ready to switch back to distance education if necessary.
  • "We do not want to use distance learning for schools as a precautionary measure," said Britta Björkholm, head of section at the Public Health Agency.
