Communication from the Swedish Expo 2020 Committee regarding the COVID-19 virus
Due to the ongoing development surrounding the new coronavirus COVID-19, the Swedish Expo 2020 Committee wishes to communicate the following:
- The global spread of the coronavirus means that we currently are in a very unusual situation. The restrictive measures taken by the Swedish government and other organizations are aimed at managing and preventing the continued spread of the virus.
- The Swedish Expo 2020 Committee is fully aware that the virus may have effects on the implementation of the world exhibition.
- Exactly how the coronavirus may affect Expo 2020 is currently under investigation, both internationally and in Sweden. Together with other participating countries, the Swedish Expo 2020 Committee is having a close dialogue with the Expo organizer and the world exhibition organization BIE on how Expo 2020 can be carried out in both a safe and successful manner.
- As soon as the Swedish Expo 2020 Committee has more information in the matter, we will communicate this to all involved.
