Denmark will be easing all of its remaining Covid-19 restrictions by the 10th of September, according to its health ministry.
As a result of the country’s vast vaccination coverage, the health ministry stated that the virus no longer poses a threat.
With more than 70% of the population now fully vaccinated, Health Minister Magnus Heunicke stated, “The epidemic is under control, we have record vaccination levels,”.
Although restrictions have been eased, he stated that the epidemic is not over and that the government will not hesitate to act quickly “if the pandemic once again threatens the essential functioning of society.”
The requirement to present a Covid-19 pass in order to gain access to businesses such as cinemas, gyms and hair salons will also be lifted on the 1st of September. However, it will remain in place for nightclubs until September 10th.
Since the 14th of August, masks have no longer been required for travelling on public transport in Denmark.
