The royal court at its website about the visit to Stockholm County:

On Monday 12 October, the King and Queen visited operations in Stockholm County to draw attention to efforts in connection with the covid-19 pandemic.
"Due to the covid-19 pandemic, our family will visit the country's 21 counties to draw attention to the good efforts being made in various sectors of society.
Yesterday we visited operations in Stockholm County, where the pandemic has significant effects on, among other things, healthcare, culture and business.
Yesterday's meetings once again reminded us of the seriousness of the situation we are now in. At the same time, we were impressed by the professionalism and fighting spirit that exists in all the companies, organizations and individuals who work in different ways to meet the challenges of the covid-19 pandemic. faced Stockholm County.”
Hosts during the visit to the county were Governor Sven-Erik Österberg and Mrs Ann-Marie Österberg.
Karolinska Institutet
The royal couple began the day by visiting Karolinska Institutet (KI) in Solna. At KI, a presentation was given of the research conducted in connection with the corona virus in order to develop vaccines and develop treatment methods. The royal couple also received an orientation regarding how loneliness and social distancing affect public health.
Karolinska University Hospital
At Karolinska University Hospital, the Royal Couple visited the Stockholm Command Centre. The center was created in March with the task of coordinating the purchase and distribution of protective equipment to the emergency hospitals, primary care and the municipalities during the covid-19 pandemic.
At the hospital, the King and Queen had the opportunity to talk to healthcare staff who cared for patients with covid-19.
The Swedish National Defence University
Later in the morning, the Royal Couple visited the Swedish National Defence University to obtain information about the expert support the university has provided to the Government Offices in connection with the pandemic. The work of developing strategies to prevent so-called "sneaking crises", such as pandemics, was also presented.
At Hasselbacken, the Royal Couple received information about the City of Stockholm's collective work due to the pandemic, with a special focus on school and elderly care. Afterwards, a briefing was given on how the business community in the county has been affected during the pandemic. The effects of the pandemic on travel and the hospitality industry were also discussed.
Finally, the King and Queen visited Skansen. At Skansen, the Royal Couple received information about how the museum and the nearby Vasa Museum have been affected during the ongoing pandemic.

King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia visit... - Swedish Press Agency _ Facebook

King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia have broken their long corona isolation.
During their first official visits in eight months, the royal couple met doctors and researchers - and discussed the use of mouth guards, writes Dagens Nyheter.
- We must continue to hold on now, the king tells the newspaper.
During a visit to Karolinska University Hospital, Queen Silvia discusses the use of masks.
- I think many want to know why we are not recommended to wear them, because there are demands on them in so many other countries, she says, according to DN.
The Queen receives the answer that the mask according to the Public Health Agency's assessment does not provide sufficient protection, that on the contrary it is difficult to use.
- I do not think it seems that anyone can explain that so that you actually understand, the king says then and shakes his head, writes DN.
Among the stops were also Karolinska Institutet and the Swedish National Defence University. The royal couple also met Björn Ulvaeus and Jonas Abrahamsson, CEO of Swedavia, to discuss the impact of the corona crisis on the tourism and hospitality industry.
The royal couple has largely lived in quarantine at Stenhammar's castle outside Flen since February.
They have worked by phone and video link. Like many others over the age of 70, they have not met their grandchildren.
- A friendly neighbor has shopped for us. Otherwise, we have taken care of ourselves and tried to be careful, says Queen Silvia.

At their county visit on Monday the king and queen spoke about masks.

State epidemiologist Anders Tegnell has a clear message to give the king.
One issue that is as controversial as it is hotly debated is the face masks. In many countries, they are mandatory, while Sweden has chosen a more liberal approach to the measure. Queen Silvia took the opportunity to ask the medical expertise on site in Karolinska after a small factual background to the Public Health Agency's sometimes questioned recommendation.
The king questioned the explanation
- I think many want to know why we are not recommended to wear them, because there are demands on them in so many other countries, Silvia said according to Dagens Nyheter.
The doctors argued that masks often increase the risk of infection, even though the intention is the opposite. It made the king shake his head. He was not happy.
- I don't think it seems that anyone can explain that so that you actually understand, said His Majesty.
Anders Tegnell answers the king
Now the king has received an answer directly from Anders Tegnell. Expressen had a chat with the Public Health Agency's state epidemiologist and passed on our regent's wonder. Finally, the king got the answer to his question: why don't we in Sweden wear masks?
- Because it is much more important that we keep our distance. If we just keep our distance, we don't need a mask. The effect of masks when we are close to each other is difficult to evaluate. There are no good studies on it. And we must remember that several of the countries that have a very large spread of infection have had legislation on masks for long periods. So it is quite obvious that the masks will not save us from the pandemic. In general in society, they don't seem to have a great effect, says Anders.
