Update: Region Sörmland also introduced similar measures on Tuesday bringing the total number of regions with tougher mask recommendations up to five.

  • Stockholm joined four other regions by urging people to wear face masks at all times while riding public transit and while indoors where crowding can occur.

  • The measure goes beyond the national recommendations that recommend masks only during rush hour on mass transit.

  • Lower and upper secondary schools were also told to switch to remote learning for a week after their winter break ends.
