FINALLY a small step forward! From 1 June, new public ceilings apply for public gatherings and public events. This means that the public ceiling is raised - but on the condition that the Public Health Agency's rules are followed.

What applies now?
Indoor standing: still 8 people Indoor seating: 50 people and finally Outdoor seating: 500 people.

The Swedish Public Health Agency also gives the county administrative boards (ie regionally) the opportunity to lower the public ceilings. Therefore, it is important to also keep track of what applies in different regions, but today no regions have announced anything else.

At this link You can read about what the government's planning to lift the restrictions in the future looks like.

Below you as a musician can check out the rules that apply to organizers.

We say BIG THANKS FOR THE LOAN! to Swedish Jazz, who has done the solid basic work of carving out what is important for the music life to know:

REGULATIONS OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH AUTHORITY

Read the entire regulation on the Swedish Public Health Agency's website

COMMON TO ALL CONCERT ACTIVITIES IS THAT THE ORGANIZER SHOULD:

  • inform participants about how the spread of infection can be avoided
  • offer participants the opportunity to wash their hands with soap and water or offer hand disinfection
  • ensure that staff or officials receive adequate information on hygiene measures to prevent infection
  • document in writing the other infection control measures that the business has taken
  • follow up the infection control measures taken
  • stay informed about special recommendations from the Public Health Agency and the regional infection control doctor

FOR CONCERTS WITHOUT DIRECTED SEAT INDOOR AND OUTDOOR, THE ORGANIZER SHOULD ALSO:

  • calculate the maximum number of participants who may stay in the room or area at the same time
  • document in writing the maximum number and how the calculation has been made
  • clearly estimate the maximum number
  • ensure that the maximum number is not exceeded

The maximum number must be calculated so that each participant outdoors can dispose of at least 5 square meters, indoors 10 square meters.

FOR CONCERTS WITH INDICATED SEAT INDOOR AND OUTDOOR, THE ORGANIZER SHOULD ALSO ENSURE THAT:

  • companies must keep a distance of at least 1 meter sideways and forwards and backwards
  • the number of participants in one and the same company amounts to a maximum of four people

If the party amounts to more than four participants, the organizer must divide the party with a maximum of four people in each party.

GENERAL COUNCIL FOR GENERAL MEETINGS AND PUBLIC EVENTS

Congestion can be avoided by:

  • measures are taken to spread the visitors' arrival time
  • the organizer can inform about which days and times there is less risk of congestion (for example at multi-day events such as festivals)
  • direct visitors to different entrances or exits
  • develop alternative solutions to physical queues
  • indicate which distance visitors should keep to each other in the room - for example by markings on the floor or ground
  • indicate in which direction visitors should move
  • set boundaries for different groups to stay in, such as fence traps or ropes, and staff on site guide the participants so that there is a smooth flow and prevent crowds in smaller spaces
