Yes. Events or other activities with more than five people gathered simultaneously at the same location are banned. This ban applies to both indoor and outdoor gatherings, and it applies to both public and private events etc.
A number of exemptions have been made:
The ban on gatherings of more than five people does not apply to events etc. attended only by members of the same household or only by persons who are all each other's closest relatives. A person's closest relatives are his or her spouse, live-in partner, regular partner, brothers and sisters, parents (including his or her parents' and foster parents' spouses, live-in partners or regular partners), children and foster children (including his or her spouse's, live-in partner's or regular partner's children and foster children). In those situations, the ban on gatherings of more than 10 people being simultaneously at the same location applies.
Moreover, the ban on gatherings does not apply to events, activities etc. held on common indoor areas of homes on which residents cannot avoid interacting with each other, including shared kitchen and showering facilities at halls of residence and similar shared accommodation.
The ban on gatherings of more than five people being simultaneously at the same location does not apply to private homes and adjacent gardens. In private homes and adjacent gardens, up to 500 people can gather simultaneously. However, this does not apply to courtyards and the like which are at the disposal of residents from a large number of homes, nor to gardens adjacent to private homes where events etc. open to the public are held. Even though events at private homes and adjacent gardens are exempt from the ban on gatherings, citizens are strongly urged to hold events, parties and celebrations at private homes for nobody else but close family members and friends, always to end parties by 10.00 pm at the latest and to observe the health authorities' general recommendations on good hygiene, social distancing and appropriate conduct as well as the advice of the Danish Health Authority set out in 'Private events, parties and celebrations during the period of COVID-19' (in Danish). See the advice of the Danish Health Authority at sst.dk.
The ban does not apply to indoor burial and funeral services either, nor to the elements of burial and funeral services held indoors. For such services, a maximum of 500 people can gather simultaneously, provided that the minimum floor area requirement is observed. The ban does not apply to outdoor burial and funeral services either, nor to the elements of burial and funeral services held outdoors. No more than 50 people can gather simultaneously at the same location. People attending as employees, such as pastors and church custodians, are not included in the 50 people.
Moreover, the ban on gatherings does not apply to religious services or to baptism, marriage or similar religious ceremonies performed in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Denmark and other religious communities at premises usually at their disposal. For such services and ceremonies, a maximum of 500 people can gather simultaneously, provided that the minimum floor area requirement is observed.
Moreover, the ban on gatherings of more than five people does not apply to activities for socially vulnerable children and young people up to and including the age of 21, whether they are alone or with their families, when the activities are organised by public authorities, organisations, associations, businesses or cultural institutions. For such activities, no more than 50 people (including participants and volunteers) can gather simultaneously at the same location.
Ordinary activities at workplaces do not fall within the scope of the ban on gatherings. This means that more than five people can perform ordinary job functions simultaneously at their workplace if the activities are obvious or necessary to perform work assignments, including activities in public spaces or activities necessitating the presence of people from different companies etc. This exemption also applies to work performed in connection with events and activities falling within the scope of the ban on gatherings. Athletes, staff etc. who are present by virtue of an employment relationship under which they receive pay are therefore exempt from the ban on 'small' gatherings.
People being present by virtue of an employment relationship are not included in the maximum of five people who can gather simultaneously for an event etc. People such as coaches, facilitators, trainers, tutors etc. who are present by virtue of an employment relationship under which they receive pay are not included in the maximum of five people who can gather simultaneously. Moreover, there is an upper limit of 500 people in total who can gather simultaneously for events exempt from the ban on 'small' gatherings. Everybody attending, including people being present by virtue of an employment relationship, are included in the 500 people.
Professional athletes and the facilities used by the athletes before, during and after the performance of the sport are exempt from the ban on 'small' gatherings. Accordingly, up to 500 professional athletes can attend simultaneously. As regards audience, it is no longer possible to organise indoor professional sports events with audience as the facilities used by professional athletes are not open to the public, including audience. As regards outdoor professional sports events, the ban on gatherings must be observed, which means a maximum audience of five.
Professional athletes comprise athletes who represent Denmark at the highest national or a senior international level in a branch of sports recognised by the National Olympic Committee and Sports Confederation of Denmark (DIF), who have been selected for a Danish senior national team in a branch of sports recognised by the DIF, who are ranked in one of Team Danmark's athlete categories or who are otherwise part of a Team Danmark scheme or nominated or selected for an Olympic/Paralympic team. By highest national level is meant the best league or top competitive level in Denmark in the relevant branch of sports. By senior international level is meant participation in a World Cup, a European championship, a world championship or the Olympic Games. The exemption also applies to harness races and gallop races at the nine commercial horse racing tracks with licenced drivers and riders, the second and third male football leagues, the second female football league, the second male and female handball leagues and other professional branches of sports in which most athletes of that league or at competitive level make a living as athletes.
The ban on gatherings does not apply to political and other opinion-shaping gatherings such as demonstrations and political party meetings. This means that more than five people can attend political party meetings, demonstrations etc. There is no upper limit on the number of people allowed to attend such events. Normally, this exemption does not apply to general assemblies, national congresses, conferences etc., which can normally be attended by up to five people.
