Parliament wants outdoor serving without corona passport

Restaurant and cafe guests shouldn’t need to produce a negative COVID-19 test when sitting outdoors, contend political majority

When another round of COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed next week, people visiting cafes and restaurants will have to show a negative COVID-19 test to be able to be served outside. 

However, a majority of Parliament contend that this shouldn’t be the case for patrons being served outdoors.

“There is no reason to have COVID-19 rules that have no effect,” Enhedslisten’s spokesperson for COVID-19-related issues, Peder Hvelplund, told DR Nyheder.

“The restrictions we have should only be implemented because they reduce infection rates. I have a difficult time seeing a negative test doing that in regards to outdoor serving.”

Slowly reopening the country
Aside from the outdoor serving, the easing of restrictions with a negative COVID-19 test on April 21 will allow entry to museums, art galleries, libraries and certain indoor sport activities for people under the age of 18.

Furthermore, indoor serving at restaurants and cafes will be permitted with a negative COVID-19 test from May 6.

Cinemas, theatres and certain indoor sport activities for adults will also be permitted on the same date.
