The first phase of a gradual reopening of Danish society requires that everyone still adhere to the guidelines on social distance and hygiene advice, as the spread of infection can otherwise be so severe that the capacity of the health service will be severely challenged.
Effective action against the spread of COVID-19 in Denmark thus requires that each citizen takes responsibility for reducing the number of social contacts and ensuring proper distance to his or her citizens. This also applies within the family and circle of friends. And this applies at least as much now that a controlled reopening of Danish society is underway.

International movement restrictions: Partially banned

Restrictive measures mandatory between 15 June 2020 to 31 August 2020
