The City of Malmö builds its measures on assessments and recommendations from the Public Health Agency and other authorities. We follow events and are ready to increase our efforts if necessary.


  • The Public Health Agency’s regulations and general guidelines on special COVID-19 restrictions have ceased to apply.
  • Limits on attendance numbers at cultural and sporting events have been removed.
  • The limit on attendance numbers at private meetings and gatherings at rented premises has been removed.
  • There are no longer any restrictions for cafés and restaurants.
  • Malmö will now gradually reopen its cultural activities.

In addition:

  • The city’s schools are offering vaccination against COVID-19 to pupils aged 12 and over.

Restrictions continue to apply to adults who are not fully vaccinated.

Unvaccinated people run a greater risk of getting COVID-19 and of infecting others.

The new guidelines mean that unvaccinated individuals should keep a distance from other people and should avoid close contact with people in a risk group and people who are aged 70 and over. These guidelines do not apply to people under the age of 18 or people who have been recommended not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical reasons.
