Service providers having close in-person contact with clients and customers, such as hairdressers

Yes. Tattooists, body piercers, spa clinics, body lounges, beauty parlours, massage parlours, hairdressers and other premises at which clients are offered services involving close physical contact between the service provider and the client as well as on tanning studios are allowed to stay open. 

They are, however, required to:


  • Ensure a free floor area of at least four square metres for each customer, visitor or participant. However, at premises where customers, visitors or participants are mainly seated, one customer, visitor or participant is allowed for each two square metres of floor area.  
  • Ensure that all employees and other persons admitted to the premises observe the Danish Health Authority's recommendations on good hygiene and appropriate conduct.
  • Display information posters telling people with symptoms of COVID-19 to isolate themselves at home.
  • Display information posters on good hygiene and appropriate conduct in public spaces. 
  • Make water and soap and/or hand sanitizer (with an alcohol concentration of at least 70%) available to customers, visitors and participants. 
  • Ensure that employees and other persons admitted to the premises use gloves when selling and delivering non-wrapped food if they touch the food with their hands.
  • Change the layout of premises to ensure social distancing between customers, visitors and participants – also at checkouts.


Face masks or shields are not required in those places.
