Tell us: What do you think about Sweden’s lifting of Covid restrictions?

After Sweden announced that most pandemic restrictions will be removed at the end of the month, we want to hear from foreign residents about what the changes mean for you.

From September 29th, the remaining rules on events, restaurants and bars will be removed, along with the recommendation to work from home. 

If you want to share what you think of the move, please fill out our short survey.

You have the option to remain anonymous, and for the text-based questions you can share as much or as little detail as you choose – we will read them all and use them to inform our reporting. Due to the high number of responses we receive, we cannot publish them all, but we aim to publish a representative sample. 

If you want to read more about the re-opening plan before responding, please see the articles below:

This is our fourth major survey on the Swedish response to the pandemic (you can read the articles created from earlier reader surveys in April, June, and December 2020, and June 2021, and we have also carried out further surveys related to specific topics such as long distance relationships, parenting and vaccinations). Although these surveys are not scientific, they are part of our commitment to raising the voices of Sweden’s foreign residents.

  1. I had the two shots of the Vaccines and stayed at a Hotel in Stockholm full of parents with their young kids , just after the first restrictions were lifted . I got infected with Covid because no one wore a mask , there was no social distancing and the hotel was overcrowded . Thank God I was vaccinated as the Delta Variant is terrible really terrible so this rush to lift all the restrictions will come back to haunt Sweden in the Winter . I noticed the German guests all wore masks and thought Sweden had gone mad .

    1. I agree. The authorities seem to enjoy being irresponsible if not stupid. And your average Swede is only too happy to follow. Sad, really. I thought this country was better than this. Geez was I wrong.
