01.04.2021 - Liberal businesses in five municipalities won't be allowed to reopen before 11.04.2021

OBS: This is unfortunately -not- an April fool's joke :(


Correction: In yesterday's breaking news about a possible outbreak on Østerbro in Copenhagen, it was mentioned that it was with the Brazilian variant, P1. The Danish health authorities have since clarified, that we don't know yet whether the outbreak is with the Brazilian variant or the South African variant, B1351, as the sequencing hasn't been finished yet. Furthermore are both PCR and quick tests acceptable, and not only PCR-tests, as mentioned.


Bullets:

  1. Liberal businesses in Ishøj, Brøndby, Halsnæs, Fredensborg and Gladsaxe won't be allowed to reopen Tuesday the 6th of April due to a high incidence number in those municipalities. Instead, they have to wait until the 11th of April - at the earliest.

  2. An automatic system for restrictions/shutdowns will be implemented, when municipalities have an incidence number higher than 200.

  3. Such restrictions are shutting down schools, daycare institutions and likely also liberal businesses, higher educations, shopping centres etc.

More details

  • A high number of infected in five municipalities means that liberal businesses (hairdressers, tattoo parlours, massage clinics etc.) located in Ishøj, Brøndby, Halsnæs, Fredensborg and Gladsaxe won't be allowed to reopen Tuesday the 6th of April. Instead, they have to wait until the 11th of April - at the earliest.

  • Furthermore have the political parties behind the reopening plan agreed to a plan, that will automatically implement restrictions in municipalities where the incidence number surpasses 200 infected per 100.000 residents on a weekly basis - and the shutdowns can be done at parish-level (sogn in Danish, red.) if the incidence number is higher than 400 in a specific parish.

  • Those automatic restrictions will be the shutdown of schools (except efterskoler and højskoler, where students instead will be encouraged to stay in the institutions) and daycare institutions. Furthermore, it's expected in the agreement that liberal businesses, higher educations, shopping centres and shops will be closed as well if the incidence number gets higher than 200, but this will have to be decided upon in the ministry responsible and the epidemic commission from case to case.
