Visiting ban in elderly care is extended

The national ban on visits to the elderly care will be extended until August 31, announces Lena Hallengren, Minister of Social Affairs, at a press conference on Monday. The purpose of the ban on visits is to reduce the risk of covid-19 infection

The Government assigns the National Board of Health and Welfare to increase support for the elderly care, in order to enable visits in a safe way. As the ban on visits is extended, the government wants the elderly care to be supported so that the elderly and their relatives can stay in touch with each other. This could mean providing protective equipment, arranging visits outdoors or through digital tools, such as tablets.
