The Government: Ban on serving alcohol after 10 pm

The Ministry of Health and Social Affairs has proposed a new law temporarily banning the serving of alcohol after 10 pm.

The proposal means that the serving of alcoholic beverages and alcohol-like products will be prohibited between 10 pm and 11 am in order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. According to the Public Health Agency of Sweden, venues serving food and drink are particularly risky from the point of view of infection control as people gather and spend long periods in close physical proximity within a limited area.

Exceptions are made for serving refreshments in residential care homes and room service at hotels or minibars in hotel rooms.

The regulation is proposed to come into force on 20 November and will apply until the end of February 2021.
