The travel ban aimed at Denmark by neighbours Sweden has been extended.
The ban, which significantly restricts people crossing into Sweden from Denmark, will now be in effect until at least April 1.

The measures are also levelled against citizens from other EU and EEA countries who gain entry into Sweden.

According to the Swedish PM, the measures pertain to preventing the spread of the highly-contagious COVID-19 mutations.
The exceptions to the ban with Denmark includes children who are meeting up with a parent living in Sweden or Bornholm.
Adults accompanying the children on such a journey can also enter.
Moreover, certain ambulances will also be allowed to cross the border.
The ban also still doesn’t impact people who live or work in Sweden.
