Slow down the spread of Covid-19

Slow down the spread of covid-19

In order to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, it is important for everyone to take responsibility. This is made sure by taking the following actions:

  • Stay at home if you are feeling ill with symptoms such as nasal congestion, respiratory infection, coughing, or fever, even with mild symptoms. See the whole list of symptoms here.
  • Avoid visiting older people. Those aged over 70 are advised to limit contact with other people as far as possible for some time ahead.
  • Wash your hands often with hot water and soap.
  • Avoid going to parties and other social events.
  • Keep your distance from other people in public places.
  • Avoid travelling in rush hour traffic.
  • Avoid unnecessary journeys.

Work from home

Employers who have the option of letting employees work from home may consider recommending that. This could have some dampening effect on the dissemination - and thus relieve healthcare services - especially in the Stockholm region.

Avoid unnecessary trips in Sweden

Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the Public Health Agency recommends that everyone consider whether planned trips in Sweden are necessary. Those who are sick are advised not to travel at all.
