Seniors and risk groups

Lund Municipality's focus is to protect the elderly and other risk groups; therefore clear routines exist to reduce the spread of infection among both those who receive care and staff. We follow the Public Health Agency's directive for public health care professionals that strengthen the positive development of society in order to adapt our care and well-being work directly.

This is how elderly care and LSS (regulations for social needs) work with the corona virus and covid-19

To protect those who receive care; all staff members should stay at home even if experiencing mild symptoms and for two symptom-free days. We are diligent in following hygienic routines and if necessary, use appropriate protective equipment. When anyone receiving care is suspected of or found to have covid-19, we contact Region Skåne and take strict measures to protect others.
