Updated at 08.40 on 10 January 2023.
As of 9 February 2022, the Swedish Government and the Public Health Agency of Sweden remove almost all restrictions, guidelines and recommendations. This means that we all can be back at the university.
If you have any symptoms that may be Covid-19, you should stay home from work also henceforth and avoid contact with others.
The Public Health Agency of Sweden stresses that the single most important measure still is to get vaccinated.
Changed regulations for certain international travel on account of covid-19
The Swedish Government has decided that people travelling to Sweden from China must show a certificate of a negative covid-19 test result, regardless of vaccination status. Individual countries may also have restrictions for entry and exit.
Entry to Sweden from China
The Public Health Agency of Sweden has now established what criteria these certificates should meet. This concerns, among other things, what types of covid-19 tests are approved and how old they may be.
Detailed instructions for what criteria must be met at entry into Sweden from China can be found on the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s website.
If you travel abroad, keep track of the Swedish embassy’s information on what applies at your destination. At Krisinformation.se, you will find compiled information on what applies when travelling.
Travel information from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs
On the webpage UD:s reseinformation [Travel information from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs] you will find advice and information that will be useful before and during your trip abroad. Here you will also find information on what countries the Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises against travelling to, information on visa, and links to Swedish embassies and consulates.
The app UD Resklar uses location services and push notifications that will make it easier for you to keep track during your trip. In the app, you can also take part of travel information, find contact details to Swedish embassies, and get advice and recommendations in case you would find yourself in an emergency situation abroad.
In case of illness or infection
Protective masks are available at Infocenter in both cities during regular opening hours. In Kalmar, Infocenter is located in building Stella and in Växjö it is located in building H.
If you or someone in your household experience respiratory symptoms
If you have symptoms
Stay home if you have new-onset respiratory symptoms that may be signs of Covid-19. This also applies if you have had covid-19 before or have been vaccinated.
If someone in the household show symptoms
If someone in the household develops symptoms that could be due to Covid-19, the person who is ill should stay at home. Other people in the household should pay extra attention to symptoms. Asymptomatic people can go to work, school or leisure activities as usual.
If someone in the household falls ill with Covid-19
If you live with someone who has Covid-19, you do not need to stay at home, if you yourself are healthy. But be aware if you get sick and get symptoms of Covid-19. Then you should stay at home.
Unvaccinated against Covid-19
You who are unvaccinated are at greater risk of becoming seriously ill with Covid-19. To avoid getting sick, you who are unvaccinated should be extra careful and avoid indoor environments where many people gather.
Infection without symptoms
Covid-19 can spread from people with or without symptoms.
