Adapted restrictions to be introduced 1 June
The following is proposed from 1 June:
- New limitations on the number of participants in general gatherings and public events will take effect. For indoor events with designated seating, the limit will be raised to 50 participants. For indoor events without designated seating, the limit will remain at eight participants.
- For outdoor events with designated seating, the number of participants will be increased to 500 people. For outdoor events without designated seating, the limit will be raised to 100 people.
- Special rules for outdoor sports and competition events, such as races, will be introduced and mean that the number of participants will be increased to 150 people.
- The Public Health Agency of Sweden will have the opportunity to decide on lowered participation ceilings regionally.
- Markets and amusement parks can open but with requirements for infection control measures.
- Smaller scale camps for children and young people will be permitted.
The Public Health Agency of Sweden also proposes new opening hours for restaurants:
- It is proposed that restaurants could remain open until 10:30 p.m. Serving of alcohol will be permitted until 10 pm.
The Public Health Agency of Sweden has written in a report to the government that society as a whole is expected to be able to return to normal in September 2021. However, vaccination efforts must continue as planned, and everyone must continue to follow the existing rules and recommendations. It is proposed that adaptations of infection control measures commencing on 1 June should take place gradually depending on the situation and follow a three-stage roadmap.
