Dear Visitor

Thank you for visiting the home of the Conservative Party in Sweden.

Today, Sweden has surpassed 10,000 confirmed cases of the disease caused by COVID-19, Coronavirus.

It is getting more important, and more imperative that you stay at home and follow the Swedish Government’s advice, you are urged to;

  • Stay at home if you are at all sick (even with a mild cough or sore throat)
  • Practice social distancing
  • Avoid non-essential travel within the country
  • Work from home if possible
  • Follow good hygiene practices
  • Avoid non-essential visits to elderly people or hospitals

Furthermore, if you are;

  • Aged 70 or above
  • In an ‘at risk group’

You are advised to about social contact as much as possible.

These suggestions from the Swedish Government come as the death toll from COVID-19 in Sweden reaches 899. It is very much a real threat to our normal lives.

As your overseas branch of the Conservative Party, we are here to help you in situations like this. So should you require our help in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, please email us on our dedicated email for this response: covid@conservatives.se. Please note that this email is only for anything relating to the Coronavirus, we cannot help you with anything else through this email account.

Currently, the response still does not seem likely to be anywhere near as drastic as the UK (lockdown) at the moment, however we will keep you updated once we hear news.

In the meantime, please Stay Safe, Stay Home, Save Lives.

Yours,

Ryan
Country Representative and Branch Chairman
