Efforts of PTS relation to the coronavirus (covid-19)

Post and Telephone Authority (PTS) crisis staff monitored events relating to the spread of Covid-19 between February 2020 and September 2021.

PTS maintained contact with stakeholders of the postal sector and the electronic communications sector, in order to acquire status reports if needed. In addition, the PTS cooperated with other entities in order to handle direct and indirect consequences of the pandemic.

PTS provided the information needed by other stakeholders, such as The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB).

After September 2021 PTS monitors events related to Covid-19 via ordinary activities.
