A number of Danish primary schools, nurseries and kindergartens are to reopen following month-long closure


Following a month-long closure due to the Covid-19 outbreak, some primary schools, nurseries and kindergartens have reopened in Denmark.

They are the first country in Europe to start doing this.

Half of Denmark’s towns have started this procedure, others have requested more time to adjust to health protocols.

By April 20th, all of them are expected to reopen.

Schools are still required to maintain social distancing in classrooms.

The reopening has received some opposition from parents which lead to 18,000 signatures on a petition dubbed “My child is not a guinea pig”.
