Jämtland County

As of 19 November until 13 December, everyone in Jämtland County is urged to:

  • If possible, physical contact with people other than those with whom you live should be avoided. This means, among other things, advice against arranging or taking part in parties or similar social gatherings.
  • Refrain from making unnecessary trips. Trips within or between counties can contribute to increasing the spread of infection because you often meet new people, which results in the start of new chains of infection. One should therefore refrain from such travel insofar as possible. This advice is not intended to prevent people from, for example, going to work, studies/employment or care that requires you to be on site.

The decision also includes stricter general recommendations for workplaces and businesses – such as shops, shopping centres and sports facilities in Jämtland County:

  • All businesses should take steps to ensure that each and every one can follow the general recommendations. Employers should take measures such as encouraging personnel to work from home, offering more opportunities for remote work and postponing business travel, conferences and other physical meetings. Other businesses can minimise the number of visitors present on their premises at the same time, adapt opening hours or offer digital alternatives.

The stricter recommendations are applicable until 13 december 2020 but may be extended.

Special restrictions

As of 24 November 2020, a maximum of 8 persons is allowed at public gatherings and events. This also applies to seated audiences. This restriction is applicable until further notice. An exception is made for funerals, where a maximum of 20 persons is allowed.
