Even staff at the retirement home have been found to be infected with the coronavirus.

– Some of the staff have been tested. We have staff who have confirmed covid-19 and we have co-workers with symptoms.

On Thursday, 41 per cent of the permanent staff were absent.

– It would be preferable if all employees with symptoms at this residence were tested.

What are you doing now?

– We’re doing what we've been doing all along. We’re following our basic hygiene routines, limiting staff who work with those infected, we’re using protective equipment and we’ve had a visiting ban in place for a few weeks, says Camilla Gärdebring.
