A maximum of eight around the table at the pub – new restrictions in effect tomorrow
The spread of the corona virus is increasing again. This time it’s the new variant, omikron, that is more infectious but seems to give milder symptoms.
Many of the restrictions and recommendations we know from before. Such as, those who can should work from home.
Pubs and restaurants that are allowed to serve alcohol must close at 23:00 and only eight people are allowed to sit at each table.
The number of people allowed at private gatherings is reduced from 50 to 20 seated guests.
Tomorrow Wednesday, the 12 of January, the new restrictions are introduced in order to reduce the spread of infection. That’s the message the government gave during Monday's press conference:
– The situation has without a doubt gotten worse. The spread of infection in Sweden is at historically high levels, said Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson during the press conference.
