Hotspots, warning zones and bans on loitering

Avoid areas with a risk of large gatherings. Below, you will find a list of the areas currently categorised as hotspots, warning zones and bans on loitering.

Large gatherings risk increasing the spread of COVID-19. The police therefore regularly take stock of areas where the risk of large gatherings is high. These areas may be parks and squares. Areas are categorised as either hotspots, warning zones or zones with a ban on loitering depending on the likelihood that many people will gather there. You should currently avoid all of these areas.

Hotspots

Hotspots are areas where you can move freely, but where it is assessed that there is a risk that many people will gather. Citizens are advised to avoid hotspots to the greatest extent possible.

Warning zones

Warning zones are areas that you are free to enter, but where the police has an increased presence. The warning zones are monitored closely, and if the development constitutes an increased risk of infections, temporary bans on loitering may be introduced in the zones.

Ban on loitering

You are not allowed to stay in areas where loitering is not allowed. Areas with a ban on loitering are locations where the police have assessed that there is a great risk that many people will gather and loitering is therefore not allowed at these locations. Passing through the area is allowed, but loitering is not. Staying in an area with a ban on loitering carries a DKK 2,500 fine.

The following list of current hotspots, warning zones and bans on loitering is dynamic and may change. New locations can be added, and locations may be removed as agreed by the police, municipalities etc.
