If you need to continue to use public transport, you will find that the front doors of the buses are again closed for entrance, all access to and from the bus must take place from the back doors.
This measure is to further protect drivers and ensure distance to the few passengers on board. Also, capacity is reduced to 50 percent, so you may find the half empty bus passes you by.
In the bus or train, you are not to sit beside or opposite anyone outside of your household.
This new measure is in place due to the added distancing in all public areas from 1 to 2 meters enforced with effect from today, however, the added distancing in shops from 1 to 2 meters will not be fully implemented until Friday 8th January in order to enable shops to get stickers printed and placed and whatever else is needed to ensure the added distance.
The added public distancing measure is at present in place until the 17 January 2021 but may be prolonged depending on the development in spread, Danish Prime Minster announced at a press meeting on 5 January.
