Friday's concert on the Klarälven in central Karlstad became a crowd success. But arranging Karlstad Municipality also received extensive criticism in social media for the congestion that arose along the river. Above all, many people reacted to the fact that people did not keep distance from one another.
- Is corona over in Karlstad? asked one of many who expressed their views on Facebook.
An anonymous notifier informs the police about the event and the case is now with the police for further processing. To Swedish Radio P4 Värmland, Karlstad Municipality's Tourism Manager Maria Westin says that it is permissible to hold such events but that it is based on people taking their own responsibility.
