Information in other languages regarding the coronavirus

Åsele Municipality pays close attention to updated advice given by the Public Health Agency of Sweden (Folkhälsomyndigheten) on the coronavirus. Åsele Municipality cooperates closely with other authorities and municipalities within Region Västerbotten.

Stricter guidelines 

From 10 November until 13 December 2020, everyone in Västerbotten County are urged to:

  • If possible, physical contact with people other than those with whom you live should be avoided. This means, among other things, advice against arranging or taking part in parties or similar social gatherings.

  • You should also avoid certain types of activities if they are impossible to carry out with physically distancing yourself from other people, such as contact sports, healthcare or beauty treatments that are not for medical reasons.

  • Refrain from visits to indoor environments such as shops, shopping centres, museums, libraries, swimming pools and gyms. Necessary visits to grocery stores and pharmacies are allowed.

  • Refrain from participating in gatherings such as meetings, concerts, performances, sports training, matches and competitions. However, this does not apply to sports training for children and young people born in 2005 or later.

  • Refrain from making unnecessary trips. Trips within or between regions can contribute to increasing the spread of infection because you often meet new people, which results in the start of new chains of infection. One should therefore refrain from such travel insofar as possible. This advice is not intended to prevent people from, for example, going to work, studies/employment or care that requires you to be on site.

Necessary close contact is allowed, for example during healthcare visits and medical examinations.

The decision also includes stricter general recommendations for workplaces and businesses – such as shops, shopping centres and sports facilities.

  • All businesses should take steps to ensure that each and everyone can follow the general recommendations. Employers should take measures such as encouraging personnel to work from home, offering more opportunities for remote work and postponing business travel, conferences and other physical meetings.

Other businesses can minimise the number of visitors present on their premises at the same time, adapt opening hours or offer digital alternatives.

Special restrictions

A maximum of 8 people may gather. The government proposes further restrictions on public assembly. Starting on 24 November, for a four-week period, only eight people may attend general gatherings and public activities.

The proposal provides that the police may cancel or disperse a public meeting or assembly with more than 8 participants. Anyone who organises an event in violation of the ban may face a fine or prison sentence of up to six months.
