Changes in Covid-19 testing priorities

There is a big surge in Covid-19, and it is expected to grow. Therefore, the Public Health Agency of Sweden suggests that testing should be prioritised in order to reduce regional strain.

The Public Health Agency recommends that the regions should prioritise testing of those with symptoms. It is important to stay home and be aware of possible symptoms if anyone in your household has Covid-19.

If a person tests positive for Covid-19, everyone in the same household should stay home for seven days afterwards. This is regardless of whether they have symptoms or not. The Public Health Agency has removed the recommendation that everyone who has been abroad should be tested for Covid-19.
