In an effort to curb the further spread of the COVID-19 mutation from the UK to Denmark, current restrictions have been extended.

The Justice Ministry announced last night that the more stringent measures for people based in the UK has been extended to at least January 17.

“We must do what is necessary to limit the spread of the mutated virus from the Uk to Denmark,” said justice minister, Nick Hækkerup.

The news means that foreigners based in the UK will not be allowed to enter Denmark, unless:

– the individual is the primary caregiver to a minor

– is in family or relationship with someone in Denmark who is seriously ill or dying

– the travel is related to the transportation of goods
