Information on stricter regulations via text message

In order to reach more people with information on stricter regulations and general advice on our collective responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Swedish Public Health Agency (Fohm) and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) will send out a text message on Monday 14 December 2020 to all Swedish mobile subscribers.

The spread of COVID-19 in Sweden must be curbed. This requires us all to participate in following the Public Health Agency’s regulations and general advice. On 14 December 2020, new stricter advice will take effect throughout the country. This means that we are all obligated to take precautions to protect ourselves and others against the spread of COVID-19.

The text message is one way to create broad awareness of the advice and how to adapt to counteract the spread of infection. The message is sent on behalf of the Government.

The Sender ID and the text message

Sender ID: Fohm, MSB

The text message is in Swedish and translates to: ‘Information from the authorities: Follow the new, stricter advice to stop the spread of COVID-19. Read more on the Krisinformation website.’

The country’s telecom operators have helped make this information campaign possible. In preparing the messaging, the Public Health Agency and MSB have also enlisted the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) and the Swedish Data Protection Authority.
