All restrictions have been lifted but a range of hotspots are under surveillance

The police have decided to lift the restrictions concerning stopping up at Islands Brygge, however, a range of areas around the country are still on the police watch list.

Islands Brygge no longer has any ban on stopping, instead the municipality have marked with white stripes large square areas where it is permitted to sit up to 10 people while practising a distance of 2 meters. The aim is to make it easier for large groups of 10 to know how to behave and where they can sit safely respecting the distancing measures.

The Danish police still have a range of so-called hot spots under surveillance as they tend to attract many people.

Take note that these areas are only a problem when the sun shines and it is warm and friendly, however, at some of them during the weekend they tend to get crowded even on a cloudy day.

Your Danish Life’s writer lives close to a couple of them and if you go on a windy and grey day, they are usually not a problem, which with the current weather forecast is what the country is in for the coming week.

The article continues below.

A total of 38 hotspots have been identified by the police as places where people tend to gather together, sometimes to many at a time, and these, so the police warns, could risk receiving a ban on stopping if people do not respect the distancing measures in place when they go there.

The list is dynamic as the police put it in their press release and may change daily depending on the development.
