T: Intensive Experience



17 MAR 2021

The Public Health Agency has requested that the government lift Sweden’s entry ban for travellers from Denmark and Norway, so that the same rules would apply to them as to other Nordic and EU countries when the ban expires on March 31st, reports Swedish public radio.

It is in fact Sweden’s interior ministry, not the foreign ministry, that decides on border restrictions for foreign travellers.

Under the Public Health Agency’s proposals, travellers from Denmark and Norway would just like other EU/EEA countries have to show a negative Covid-19 test on the border, unless they are exempted (for example if they can prove they live in Sweden).

Amusement parks such as Gröna Lund and Liseberg might be able to reopen on April 11th after the Public Health Agency of Sweden proposed a set of new rules and recommendations for zoos, museums, art galleries and amusement parks.

Under the new rules, these institutions would need to follow those already applied to shops and gyms and calculate the maximum number of visitors they can accept if each is to have ten square metres for themselves in museums and galleries, and 20 square metres in zoos and amusement parks.

As in department stores, gyms and swimming pools, museums and galleries will not be allowed to have more than 500 visitors at a time, no matter how much space they have. Zoos and amusement parks can have as many as they can fit while maintaining the correct amount of space per visitor.
