COVID-19: Denmark relaxes rules, says disease not a threat to society

Denmark says it will no longer define COVID-19 as a disease that threatens society, according to the country’s health minister, Magnus Heunicke, who declared on Friday that the pandemic was now under control.

“We have recorded high vaccination rates. Therefore, as of September 10, we can drop some of the special rules we had to introduce in the fight against COVID-19.”

For people living in the country, this means that they would no longer have to show a coronavirus pass when visiting restaurants, night clubs or public events.

The compulsory wearing of face masks in public spaces, nicknamed ‘mask mandates’, have not been in effect for some time.
