On Thursday 28 May, The King, The Queen, The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel held a digital meeting with Sweden's County Governors.
The County Governor of Västmanland County, Minoo Akhtarzand, opened the meeting by providing a general overview of the situation in the county during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Each County Governor then reported on the situation in their own county.
Some of the highlighted challenges included the economic consequences for industry, the need for increased testing of healthcare workers and limited staffing. The County Governors also mentioned concerns about tourism in their counties.
The Royal Family are keen to show their support for the initiatives being carried out by society to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Royal Family are staying informed about how the pandemic is affecting Sweden via discussions, digital meetings and visits.
These visits are planned based on current recommendations, and every effort is being made not to take up time and resources unnecessarily.
