The Danish government is returning coronavirus restrictions, which were previously completely lifted in the country. By data Danmarks Radio, this decision is due to the fact that the Danish authorities again recognized COVID-19 as “a dangerous infection for society.”
From November 12, bars, restaurants, cafes, nightclubs and other closed places in Denmark serving food and drinks will require Coronapas (certificate of vaccination or infection). In addition, this document will be required for indoor events with more than 200 spectators and outdoor events with more than 2,000 spectators.
According to Danmarks Radio, the restrictions will be in effect for at least a month. Then the parliamentary committee will decide on their extension.
Denmark became the first EU country to completely abolish covid restrictions. Since September 10, the country does not require special passes to visit restaurants, clubs and gyms. Quarantine remains only for those infected with COVID-19, while self-isolation for contact persons has been canceled.
Danish Minister of Health Magnus Hoinicke wrote on Twitter that the lifting of the covid restrictions was made possible thanks to vaccinations and the “huge efforts” of the country’s residents.
