Covid-19 is no longer generally dangerous or dangerous to society

From 1st April onwards, Covid-19 will no longer be classified as a generally dangerous illness or a danger to society, the Swedish Public Health Agency has stated. However, infection tracing will still take place in in-patient care where there are people at high risk of becoming seriously ill.

Advice and recommendations

Get vaccinated if you can

The Swedish Public Health Agency recommends that everyone aged 12 and older be vaccinated against covid-19. As of November 1, 2022, the recommendation will be removed for fundamentally healthy children who are between age 12 and 17. The general recommendation will then only apply from age 17. Vaccination reduces the risk of serious illness and death.

Stay home if you have symptoms

Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 should stay at home and  avoid close contacts with others if you are ill with symptoms of Covid-19.

Special advice to those not vaccinated

Not being vaccinated increases the risk of serious illness from Covid-19. To avoid becoming infected, people who are unvaccinated should be extra careful and avoid crowded indoor environments. This recommendation only applies to adults. 

Changed priorities for testing

As from 9 February, only patients, care users, and health and elderly care staff are recommended to get tested.
