COVID-19 is an infectious disease that spreads easily. Vaccination is the most effective way of avoiding serious illness or death due to the disease. Vaccination can also help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the community. It is therefore important that as many people as possible choose to get vaccinated.
Due to the increased spread of Covid-19, Västerbotten has imposed stricter restrictions until 18 April. These regional restrictions serve as a reinforcement of national recommendations. Everyone has a personal responsibility to follow the recommendations.
If you have symptoms that may indicate Covid-19 you should stay at home and not go to work or school. This applies even if the symptoms are only mild. You can get tested to see if you have Covid-19. Taking the test is free.
If you have been notified that you have Covid-19, then you must assist subsequent contact tracing efforts. This means you are responsible for contacting anyone who may have been infected. You are also entitled to assistance from the regional contact tracing team.
