  • Prevent the spread of infection

    The Public Health Agency of Sweden encourages everyone experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, however mild, to refrain from social contact, which might spread the disease. So be vigilant about symptoms, even mild ones. Stay home if you are experiencing symptoms of disease. 

    The Public Health Agency of Sweden has new general advice to reduce the spread of COVID-19, see Håll avstånd och ta personligt ansvar (“Keep your distance and exercise personal responsibility”; at the time of publishing, only available in Swedish). The advice to employers is that they, if possible, should ensure that all staff keep a distance from each other, can wash their hands regularly, work from home, avoid unnecessary travel, and can adjust their working hours to avoid rush hour traffic.

    To prevent the spread of infection:

    • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before eating, handling food, and after restroom visits. If you are not able to wash your hands, hand disinfection may be an option.
    • Avoid touching your face if you have unwashed hands.
    • Cover your nose and mouth with flexed elbow, or a paper handkerchief, when coughing or sneezing.
    • Keep a certain distance from people who are sneezing or coughing.
    • Stay home if you feel ill.
