New rules for reduced crowding in dining establishments
The decision will apply from 3 November and means that the size of a dining party will be limited to eight people and that the audience at concerts, for example, must be seated.
The size of a dining party allowed to sit at one table is limited to eight people. If a party is larger than eight people, it must be divided between several tables with at least one metre between them. If a dining establishment wants to arrange a concert, or something similar, the audience must be seated.
The Public Health Agency of Sweden also advises taking further measures to avoid crowding if necessary.
"To ensure that crowding does not occur, dining establishments should, if necessary, increase the distance between dining parties to more than one metre or reduce the number of visitors who may be on the premises at the same time," says Bitte Bråstad, General Counsel at the Public Health Agency of Sweden.
