Information regarding coronavirus Covid-19

Coronavirus Covid-19 has hit society hard with personal tragedies, changing conditions and difficult challenges for many businesses. In some sectors, the effects of the corona crisis are extremely dramatic. For Sweden’s and the world’s tourism industry, it is the biggest crisis ever. Swedish campsites that are members of SCR Svensk Camping are working according to examined guidelines to ensure a safe holiday for all guests.

The campsites are open

The vast majority of campsites that are members of the trade association SCR Svensk Camping have opened for the season. Factors such as guests having control over their own accommodation and facilities and the fact that the stay is largely outdoors are a crucial advantage for the camping industry. Swedish campsites are working continuously to improve their cleaning routines, train their staff and inform their guests to ensure a safe environment for both guests and staff.

SCR is of course monitoring the development of the situation around Covid-19 and following the instructions and recommendations it receives from the authorities responsible. The industry’s top priority is a safe holiday for guests and a safe environment for staff.

Due to the coronavirus, some facilities have made certain changes to what they offer when it comes to activities and in some cases also opening times. There may also be some restrictions on the services offered at facilities. Contact the campsite directly for more information on how its activities have been affected. All the contact information can be found at Camping.se.

How the industry is working so you can feel safe

If you travel with a caravan or motorhome, you have a great advantage in that you can control your accommodation and local environment. To ensure a safe environment for both guests and staff, our staff work continuously to improve the cleaning routines and adapt the facilities to the new situation. Cleaning kills the virus, and good hand hygiene helps to prevent possible spread of the infection, so you should also feel safe in service buildings, the restaurant and if you have booked cottage accommodation.

Follow reviewed guidelines for a safe holiday

All the campsites that are members of SCR Svensk Camping can be found at Camping.se. They have all been provided with guidelines and guides produced by SCR Svensk Camping for a safe holiday. The documents have been reviewed by the Public Health Agency of Sweden and are now used by the Swedish tourist industry’s trade association Visita, as part of the campaign Safe to Visit.

Follow the general advice of the Public Health Agency of Sweden

It is important that guests and staff follow the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s general advice to avoid infection. Being careful to keep your distance from other persons in public settings, washing your hands often with soap and warm water, coughing and sneezing into the crock of your arm, avoiding touching your face (eyes, nose, mouth), and staying at home when you are ill can all help to reduce the risk of spreading infection.

Campsites are not subject to the ban on public gatherings

On 27 March, the government decided, on the recommendation of the Public Health Agency of Sweden, to limit public gatherings of more than 50 persons. This is part of preventing the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).  Like hotels, campsites are excluded from the ban on public gatherings of more than 50 people. However, events at and in connection with the campsite are affected. You can find more information here:
