Nursing home visit ban is extended
The government has decided to extend the ban on nursing homes until 30 September.
The Government is also instructing the Public Health Agency and the National Board of Health and Welfare to review whether the temporary ban on nursing home visits shall continue in effect after 30 September.
"Protecting seniors is now and will continue to be a priority issue for the government. At the same time, it is important that the restrictions in seniors' lives be in relation to the corona pandemic's development and how the contagion looks at the societal level", said the Minister of Social Affairs, Lena Hallengren.
