General rules in Denmark

In Denmark, a face mask or shield is required at the airport and while standing up when using public transportation. You are advised to wear a face mask or shield at test centres or when you visit the hospital.

However, some groups are exempt from the required use of face mask or shield. These include, for instance, children up to the age of 12, people with a decreased level of consciousness, or people with physical or mental impairments that make it impossible for them to remove the face mask or shield themselves.

Face masks may be removed if the wearer experience a severe discomfort, such as difficulty breathing.

A face mask or shield is required while standing up when using public transportation in Denmark. You do not need to wear a face mask or shield while being seated.

You will need to book a seat, if you travel by train (except for S-trains and the metro). Seat tickets are free of charge and can be booked at train stations or online.

Restaurants, cafés and bars are open. You must present a corona passport when served inside restaurants, cafés and bars.

It is not necessary to present a valid corona passport when served outdoors. Please note that restaurants, cafés and bars close no later than 2 am.
