Covid-19: Denmark eases culture restrictions but keeps nightlife curbs

13 January 2022, Denmark

Denmark’s government has confirmed the re-opening of cultural institutions, which have been closed due to Covid-19 since December 19th.  

A maximum of 500 people will be allowed into indoor venues including theatres, cinemas, museums, sports halls and conference centres. Amusement parks are also allowed to reopen.

A capacity requirement at places of worship is also revoked.

The new rules come into effect on January 16th.

“It’s too early to let go of the tiller,” Health Minister Magnus Heunicke said as the changes were presented at a government briefing on Wednesday evening.

The rule changes were confirmed following a meeting of the parliamentary Epidemic Committee, which must agree to any proposed changes to Covid restrictions. The committee includes representatives from each of the parties in parliament.

Expected changes to the validity period of the coronapas, Denmark’s Covid-19 health pass, were also rubber-stamped by the committee on Wednesday.
