Government unveils third phase of reopening
With the second phase of reopening Denmark from coronavirus lockdown kicking off today, the government has revealed that it intends to usher in the third reopening phase on June 8.
The agreement reached in Parliament includes ongoing gathering limitations increasing from 10 to 30-50 people and the possibility of weddings and confirmations being allowed to take place under certain guidelines.
The third phase of the reopening will also include the likes of cinemas, zoos, museums and amusement parks opening their doors again.
The government also stated that some parts of Denmark could open up before others, depending on infection rates.
Uni and night life to wait til August
However, there are five criteria that need to be in place before phase three can occur.
These are a public testing strategy, the use of protective equipment, social distancing, good hygiene and avoiding super-spreaders.
Universities, night life (nightclubs etc), fitness centres and swimming pools are among the areas that will need to wait until early August to open up during phase 4.
