  • 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.
  • If it is a restaurant, bar or similar establishment, information posters must be displayed at entrance doors stating the maximum number of people allowed at the premises. Information posters must also be displayed in or at the premises to remind people of the requirement to wear a face mask or shield and of the risk that they can be asked to leave.
  • 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.

  • 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.

Moreover, the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs (Erhvervsministeriet) has prepared guidelines for a careful layout of shopping centres, department stores, shopping arcades, bazaars etc., which provide recommendations on how businesses can adapt the layout of their premises in light of the outbreak of COVID-19. 

No. Premises and locations used for trade fair activities must be closed to the public.

In the assessment of whether an event is a trade fair, it will be taken into account whether it is an event at which several customers, visitors or participants move around to visit various separate exhibition stalls which present goods, articles etc. related to a particular theme, such as travels, books, animals and cars, without an independent purpose to make direct sales to consumers.
