Gotland County

 From12 November until 13 December, everyone on Gotland is encouraged to:

  • If possible, avoid physical contact with people other than those with whom they live. This means, among other things, refraining from arranging or attending parties and similar social gatherings. Certain types of activities should also be avoided if they are impossible to carry out with physically distancing from other people, such as contact sports, health or beauty treatments that are not medically justifiable.
  • Refrain from visits to indoor settings such as shops, shopping centres, museums, libraries, swimming pools and gyms. Necessary visits to grocery stores and pharmacies are allowed.
  • Refrain from participating in gatherings such as meetings, concerts, performances, sports training, matches and competitions. However, this does not apply to sports training for children and young people born in 2005 or later.

Necessary close contact is allowed, for example during healthcare visits and medical examinations. However, anyone with possible Covid-19 symptoms should avoid any close contact with other people.

Stricter general recommendations for workplaces and businesses
Businesses and employers should take measures to ensure that everyone can follow the stricter general recommendations. Measures employers take may include encouraging personnel to work from home, offering more opportunities for remote work and postponing business travel, conferences and other physical meetings. Other businesses may take measures to minimise the number of concurrent visitors they have, adjust opening times and offer digital alternatives.
