HIGHLIGHTS

  • Swedish soccer players will not be required to take a test for COVID-19 before practice
  • Players will instead have to fill in a self-assessment form each morning
  • Players must stay at home if they have any symptoms

Swedish soccer players will not be required to take a test for COVID-19 before practice sessions or matches.

Players will instead have to fill in a self-assessment form each morning before arriving at training or a match. The club doctor will then assess whether the player is healthy enough to take part. Players must stay at home if they have any symptoms.




The Swedish league says the principle in the country is that only people who are feeling so ill that they must visit the hospital get a ”full-scale corona test.”

The return-to-play protocols have been presented to Sweden’s public health authority. A decision is expected this week on whether the Swedish league can start next month.




Swedish society hasn’t completely shut down during the coronavirus outbreak because the government and medical authorities have chosen not to impose as many restrictions as other countries.
