Denmark has been praised for its quick response to address the Covid-19 outbreak. From its timely lockdown to its safe and gradual reopening, the country has implemented a range of measures to ensure that Denmark and Copenhagen continue to be a safe place for locals and visitors alike.
The Danish hotel, restaurant and tourism association, HORESTA, has developed safety guides for its members (“SAFE TO VISIT”) with focus on space management and hyper hygiene to secure a safe and good experience for all guests.
Covid-19 in Denmark in brief
11th March: Denmark announced its lockdown as one of the first countries in Europe.
15th April: Just one month later, a controlled and gradual re-opening of the Danish society began. Elementary/primary school pupils returned to school, workers began to return to the office and shortly after retail, restaurants & cafés, museums and tourist attractions reopened as well.
June 2020, Denmark ceased its lockdown, but follows the guidelines by the Danish Health Authorities and continues to have some travel restrictions and event restrictions in place.
Current event restrictions:
The number one priority for Copenhagen CVB and our partners is to ensure that visitors and delegates can meet in safe surroundings in Copenhagen and be assured that their events be handled with the highest safety standards in accordance with the guidelines and requirements of the Danish Health Authorities. This applies across hotels and venues to restaurants and on public and private transportation.
