The Public Health Authority has decided on certain recommendations to prevent a re-infection of COVID-19. This means, among other things, that you need to test yourself if you experience symptoms, even if you are vaccinated.

In recent weeks, the spread of COVID-19 has increased again across Europe. In order to avoid the same development in Sweden, the Public Health Authority has decided on certain restrictions and recommendations. This means that you should test yourself for COVID-19 if you have symptoms, even if you are vaccinated.

It is also important that those who have symptoms of respiratory infection remain at home from work or studies even in the event of a negative test response for COVID-19. This applies to both children and adults, even if the symptoms are mild, and this also applies to vaccinated, according to the Swedish Public Health Agency.

For public indoor events gathering more than 100 people, participants may need to present a vaccination certificate as of 1 December. However, it only concerns people over the age of 18. Please also note that vaccination certificates will not be required for teaching and exams.

In addition, Mid Sweden University continues with the gradual return to campus according to the Vice-Chancellor’s decision on September 21. 

Mid Sweden University follows the Swedish Public Health Agency’s recommendations, which you can read more about here.
