From 1 September, all restrictions will be phased out except in the nightlife, at travel and at events with over 2000 participants.
And from October 1, restrictions will probably be completely past, the agreement states.
“I am pleased that a broad majority in the Folketing has now agreed on a plan which means that all restrictions – except in the nightlife and in connection with certain events and travel to and from Denmark – will be gone in September,” he said. Minister of Justice Nick Hækkerup (S).
The agreement is a roadmap that is in line with the authorities’ recommendations. This was stated by Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke (S).
– Everything we have longed for and hoped for can only be done because we have such strong control over the epidemic with low hospitalization and infection rates and control over the various variants.
– It is a roadmap with some fixed dates that you can count on. Both as a Dane, but also as an organizer, he said at a press conference.
One of the big changes is that from Monday, you will only have to wear a mask when you get up in public transport.
This means that both shopping and restaurant visits can again be done without.
A great demand from several parties. The Unity List also welcomes the agreement.
– We have made a good agreement, which means that we almost everywhere get rid of the mouthpiece, which is a nuisance to many.
– In nursing homes, in institutions, different places in our society, but also for our nature, because they lie and float all over, said Mai Villadsen, the party’s political spokesman.
Magnus Heunicke emphasizes that epidemic control remains important, and therefore the corona passport also becomes an important tool during the phasing out.
It was precisely the corona passport that caused the negotiations to drag on.
The blue parties would have liked it removed in several places already now. But that was not the case. And several professionals have highlighted the importance of preserving it.
– The corona pass is a way that we can reduce the risk in the situations with the greatest risk of infection. For we are not a place where we can cancel the epidemic.
– We are in a good place, but we need some handles to control it over the summer, until more have been vaccinated, says Henrik Ullum, director of the Statens Serum Institut, to TV2.
The Corona Pass will be phased out in several stages until 1 October.
From 14 June, the requirement will be removed in places with the least risk of infection. This includes libraries and leisure activities.
The nightlife has also finally got a reopening day. This means that you can again go to, for example, a disco and nightclub from 1 September with a valid corona passport. However, without other restrictions.
There is agreement among the parties that if the infection develops in a worrying direction, the phasing out may be postponed or measures reintroduced.
