This week, patients in need of inpatient care, care recipients in elderly care or disability care as well as care and nursing staff will be given priority for sampling.

The public, on the other hand, has to wait.

- Other residents with mild symptoms may unfortunately have to wait longer or in the worst case may refrain from taking samples.

To avoid the spread of infection, it is very important that everyone with cold symptoms stays at home, regardless of sampling, says infection control doctor Malin Bengnér.
