From today can boy/girlfriends to residents living in Denmark enter Denmark, if they have permanent residence themselves in Germany or any of the other Nordic Countries.
The relationship needs to have lasted at least 6 months, have involved physical meetings, and be proved by e.g. mail- or SMS-correspondence, a phone-call list or photographs. It will be the border officer that makes the decision, at the border, whether the documentation will be sufficient enough to enter Denmark.
All citizens in Denmark above 18 years of age, without symptoms of coronavirus, can now order a corona-test without the need for a referral. This can be done at www.coronaprover.dk. The only thing needed is one's NemID.
POLITICS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
From today can boy/girlfriends to residents living in Denmark enter Denmark, if they have permanent residence themselves in Germany or any of the other Nordic Countries. However, it hasn’t been announced how such a relationship will be determined. The police have now informed Jyllands-Posten, that a relationship of this character needs to have lasted for at least 6 months in order to be approved and have involved physical meetings. Relationships that is purely in writing or on phone will not be approved in any cases. The police also inform of documentation needed: “The character and longitude of the relationship can be proved by showing documentation of the relationship in the form of the name, address and contact information on the boy/girlfriend combined with e.g. mail- or SMS-correspondence, a phone-call list in the phone or photographs. It is up to the citizen him/herself to estimate how much and what type of documentation they want to show to make the relation to the boy/girlfriend in Denmark likely. In the end, it is a total estimation conducted by the border officer that will determine whether the citizen will be allowed to enter Denmark.”
All citizens in Denmark above 18 years of age, without symptoms of coronavirus, can now order a corona-test without the need for a referral. This can be done at www.coronaprover.dk. The only thing needed is one's NemID. There’s capacity for doing 50.000 tests without referral per week, and there can, therefore, be some waiting time for the test. If you have symptoms of coronavirus you must still contact your general practitioner. The test will take place in the yellow tents that have been put up around the country.

The 18th of May were 24 employees at the Regional Hospital Nordjylland in Hjørring and 8 at the University Hospital Aalborg sent home, after having been in contact with a patient that had tested positive for covid-19 and had been transferred without having been isolated. 23 of the 24 employees in Hjørring have now tested negative, and will now return to work, and the last one has also tested negative but has some other symptoms that need to be found a test result for first. The results of the 8 employees in Aalborg hasn’t been announced yet. The patient had been hospitalized with covid-19 over a longer period and had been testing negative several days apart. It was therefore estimated that he didn’t need isolation. After having been transferred he got worse and tested again positive. The hospital estimates that the reason for the positive test is dead virus that has given a false positive. The SSI is currently investigating whether this is the case. No Danes have officially tested positive twice for covid-19.
