Overview of national COVID-19 measures

A series of national measures will apply until the end of 28 February 2021, including a ban on gatherings and a requirement to use personal protective equipment, and even stricter measures will apply until the end of 7 February 2021. Accordingly, the extensive lockdown in Denmark will continue.

Stricter measures applicable so far until the end of 7 February 2021

The prevalence of the more transmissible B.1.1.7 strain is increasing in Denmark. The Task Force, including the health authorities, finds that there is a considerable risk that the number of infections with this virus strain will escalate. To contain and delay the spread of the novel coronavirus, including the B.1.1.7 strain, a wide range of measures have been introduced for the period until the end of 7 February 2021.

The maximum number of people who can gather has been lowered to five people, as has also the recommendation for the maximum number of people who can gather in private homes and meet in social bubbles. Citizens are generally advised to meet with as few people as possible. The recommended minimum distance has been increased from one metre to at least two metres as a precautionary measure. The minimum area required in retail shops has also been increased.

The stricter measures include remote and online classes for pupils and students where possible, a ban on on-site consumption of food and drinks at restaurants etc. and the requirement that indoor cultural and sports facilities must stay closed. Further, citizens are still encouraged to work from home. Durable goods stores, such as DIY stores and interior design shops, must continue to stay closed, as must also shopping centres, department stores, shopping arcades and bazaars. The same applies to liberal professions who are not able to maintain the distance required to prevent infections, such as hairdressers, massage therapists, tattooists and driving schools.

Restaurants can still sell takeaway food. Shops handing out parcels are still allowed to do so if the goods have been pre-ordered and paid for online. During the entire lock-down period, grocery shops/supermarkets, pharmacies and specialist shops selling medical equipment can stay open.

National measures applicable until the end of 28 February 2021

In addition to the stricter measures applicable until the end of 7 February 2021, a series of other national measures continue to apply until the end of 28 February 2021, including the recommendation to reduce the number of social contacts, the ban on gatherings and the requirement and advice to use personal protective equipment.
