17 March 2020 – Recommended secondary and tertiary education institutions teach remotely

Intervention Categories: Social and physical distancing measures; Adapting or closing schools
Level of Jurisdiction: National

Overview: The Public Health Agency of Sweden recommended high schools, universities and other tertiary educational institutions teach remotely in order to avoid gathering large numbers of people in close physical proximity in classrooms.

The recommendation does not apply to primary schools or preschools as these children need care and cannot effectively study from home without parental supervision.
