The Swedish Transport Administration and the coronavirus

The Swedish Transport Administration is monitoring developments in relation to the coronavirus. We thank you for following the recommendations of the Public Health Agency when travelling.

Updated March 25th 2020

The Swedish Transport Administration is monitoring developments in relation to the coronavirus and adjusting its response according to recommendations from the Public Health Agency and other relevant authorities and we apply the precautionary principle.

The Swedish Transport Administration’s national crisis coordination team has been activated to ensure a collective focus in terms of our priorities and any action we plan to take. This will allow us to continually monitor the course of events with regard to the coronavirus, and adapt our response accordingly based on the very latest situation.

The Swedish Transport Administration currently receives many questions regarding the consequences of the outbreak of the coronavirus and force majeure. A general position in this matter is not possible, but each situation must be considered separately while taking the specific circumstances and conditions into account. To the extent that you consider that coronavirus affects your agreement(s) with the Swedish Transport Administration, it is important that you handle these matters in accordance with each separate agreement. The contact persons and ways to communicate agreed upon in each separate contract should thus be applied also in matters regarding the coronavirus.

Cancelled events

On 11 March, the Swedish government issued a regulation regarding a ban on holding public meetings and public events of more than 500 participants to combat the spread of COVID-19.

As a result, the Swedish Transport Administration is cancelling or rearranging a number of events including official openings, consultations and open days. These decisions are based on the number of anticipated participants and with consideration for the health of our visitors, employees and our suppliers’ employees. We will be issuing information regarding new dates as soon as possible.
