Swedes Should Get A PCR Test Upon Return from Abroad

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Sweden announced Monday a new recommendation to Swedes who have been abroad on summer holiday: they should get a PCR test upon return if they have been outside the Nordic region.

It was announced Monday as some more recommendations, including the social distancing in gyms, shopping malls and museums, would be removed as of Thursday.

Since June 1, Sweden has gradually been easing corona restrictions. Sweden’s chief epidemiologist, Anders Tegnell said Monday he could not say when the remaining limitations, including the number of people in clubs and dance floors, would be removed.

Sweden has opted for a much-debated COVID-19 approach of keeping large parts of the society open. The Scandinavian country has stood out among European nations for its comparatively hands-off response to the pandemic. It has not gone into lockdowns or closed businesses, relying instead on citizens’ sense of civic duty to control infections.
