Are people relaxing too much with the good news of less infected in Denmark and the epidemic under control?
The Copenhagen police has issued warnings on Twitter and Facebook encouraging sun hungry citizens to seek other areas than Islands Brygge, Amager Strandpark or Sandkaj at Nordhavn. Apparently these three areas are too popular and people are not respecting the distancing and crowd measures still in place.
With a weekend with more sun coming up, even if it will be slightly colder, the police is warning that it may be necessary to issue a ban in these areas, the ban will mean that people can pass the area but are not allowed to sit down, the Danish term used by the police is opholdsforbud.
Fines will also be issued to those who do not adhere to the rules.
There are a range of other areas that are less crowded where Copenhageners could go instead such as Nordhavnstippen, the beaches and parks south of Hvidovre, the large green area Amager fælled, the cemetery “park” Vestre Kirkegård, the park at Kongsholmsparken and Vestvolden, the police says in their tweet.
