Denmark scraps its domestic Covid-19 restrictions


Denmark has lifted all its domestic Covid-19 restrictions.

Epidemiologist based at the University of Roskilde Lone Simonsen says the European Union (EU) nation has extremely high coverage of adults who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, and with the Omicron variant not being as severe for those vaccinated, it was reasonable to lift the restrictions.

Among the restrictions that have been scrapped includes contact tracing; shops, restaurants, and public transport no longer having limits on the number of people allowed inside, as well as social distancing measures being scrapped.

However, some restrictions will remain in place, such as unvaccinated travellers trying to cross the border from outside Denmark’s free travel zone.
