Several restrictions being removed on 29th September

According to the Public Health Agency ("Folkhälsomyndigheten"), restrictions concerning audience limits and restaurants are no longer necessary from a point of view of protection against infection.

For this reason, the government is continuing with stage 4 of the removal of restrictions on the 29th September 2021.

For example, the regulations on how many people can take part in public gatherings or events are being removed. The requirement on seated guests in restaurant serving areas is also being removed.  The general advice on working from home will also be removed.

According to the Public Health Agency, a high level of vaccine coverage is the most important condition for removing more restrictions. For this reason, the Public Health Agencv is continuing to encourage the general public to get vaccinated.
