Restaurants, bars and cafés are still permitted to operate, if adhering to new legislation (offering table service, adjusted seating, take-away, etc.).
Many shops and stores are open but may have limited opening hours.
Mostd theatres and performance venues are closed but museums, galleries, attractions and open-air alternatives may be open (check opening hours before visiting).
Public transport is in operation, but may be limited. Please check regional services for details and follow the guidelines on domestic travel and public transport.
National parks are open. For more information, please visit the Swedish National Parks website.
Still, physical distancing applies and all businesses in Sweden must take precaution to reduce the risk of spreading covid-19. Read more about what physical distancing means and what measures to take at the covid-19 page of Public Health Agency of Sweden.
