September 15, New Regulations by Danish Authorities for COVID-19 Prevention

September 15, 2020

As you may be aware, the Copenhagen area is seeing a recent increase in the number of COVID-19 cases. In order to stop the numbers from increasing further, the Danish authorities are implementing new, local restrictions as of Thursday, September 17.

These restrictions mean that you will be required to wear a face mask in cafés, bars, and restaurants, when you are not sitting at a table. Furthermore, all bars, cafés, and restaurants must close at 10:00pm every night, at least until October 1. The authorities are urging guests to go to their separate homes after 10:00pm, and not continue the party in the streets or in a private setting, so we strongly discourage you to meet up in larger groups at the kollegium after 10:00pm.

There are as yet no plans for further restrictions, but the Danish authorities will monitor the development in the numbers of infected citizens closely and may adapt the restrictions on a running basis.

Please contact Helle Gjerlufsen at if you have any questions regarding this. Stay Safe!
