Update on Corona restrictions

Partial reopening slated for March 1, 2020. The government has finally arrived at an agreement on the extent of reopening that will be in effect on Monday 1 March. It’s all about finding the balance with this reopening being a calculated risk. Testing is a necessity, so you better get used to it, as the Prime Minister said.  

A relaxation of the current COVID-19 restrictions will be in effect as of Monday 1 March. Over the following months (until summer) more step by step relaxations will take place based on the development of the epidemic. Denmark’s different regions have a different extent of reopening.  

On the national level: 

  • Department stores under 5,000 m2 (with the exception of those in shopping centres) can open with temporarily stricter square meter requirements. 
  • Specialty stores of 5,000 m2 or more can open to a very limited number of customers by appointment only
  • Outdoor cultural institutions, such as zoos, amusement parks etc. can reopen. You will need to present a negative test no older than 72 hours. 
  • The assembly ban is raised from 5 to 25 people but only for outdoor activities organized by sports clubs and associations.  


All grade levels open in primary school. However, with a strong appeal for testing twice a week for students over 12 years of age. Liberal professions such as hairdressers, masseurs and tattooists can also open on Bornholm . Here, there will also be a requirement for a negative test. The general assembly ban is raised from 5 to 10 on the island. 

Northern and Western Jutland:  

Here, graduating students in primary school as well as in youth and adult education can return with 50 percent attendance. Meaning they can attend school physically every other week. 

The after-schools in the two areas are also opening. 


The government expects that graduate students and after-schoolers will have the opportunity to return from March 15 and again on April 6. 

All other restrictions, including current travel restrictions, have been extended until 5 April. And, still, it is strongly advised that you undergo regulary COVID-19 test, especially if you go to work on a regular basis.

The government is planning to extend aid packages and will convene negotiations on it.
