Denmark Is Opening Up Faster Than Initially Planned

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Denmark is opening up faster than initially planned and allowing restaurants to serve patrons indoors starting next Wednesday providing they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus or can show negative test results.

The limit on outdoor public gatherings will also be raised to 50 from 10 on April 21. Soccer fans will also be allowed to return to stadiums.

A vast majority of Danish lawmakers agreed Friday on the reopening plan for next week. Health Minister Magnus Heunicke said, “It will shape our daily lives in a positive direction.”

Denmark's coronavirus outbreak is largely under control. Hair salons and smaller shopping malls already have reopened, and as of Monday, people will be able to go to larger shopping malls and department stores.
