For your health: Mask compulsory again in Denmark from Monday

Denmark only said goodbye to its last corona restrictions in mid-September. But now Germany’s northernmost neighbor is also rowing back: From Monday, it is again mandatory to wear masks.

In Denmark, people have to wear mouth and nose protection again in various everyday situations from Monday. A majority in the epidemic committee of the Danish parliament approved the reintroduction of the mask requirement in public transport and shopping, as several committee members told TV2.

Reduced period of validity

In addition, the period of validity of corona tests will be shortened, as Health Minister Magnus Heunicke told TV2. Negative PCR tests will only be valid for 72 hours, rapid tests for 48 hours. That is 24 hours less than before.

There has been no mask requirement in Denmark for months. In mid-September, Germany’s northernmost neighbor also said goodbye to the last remaining corona restrictions in the country. In view of the immensely increased numbers, showing the Corona passport was reintroduced two weeks ago. With it you can show at concerts or in a restaurant that you have been vaccinated, recovered or tested negative.
