Schools and childcare

Information that applies to preschools, schools and other educational institutions with regards to infection prevention and control.

About distance learning

In the spring of 2020, the Public Health Agency of Sweden ("Folkhälsomyndigheten") recommended that secondary schools, higher education institutions, polytechnics and adult education centres should conduct distance learning. This recommendation was lifted on 15 June. In some cases, distance learning may still be relevant.

Preschools and primary schools

Preschools and primary schools can remain open. Pupils who are ill and risk infecting others must stay at home. Healthy pupils with no symptoms can continue to attend school. For information about the current situation at a particular preschool or school, please contact the head teacher or principal.

Student finance

The rules for student financing have been adapted to the Covid-19 pandemic. Measures have been taken for those who are to repay their loans.
