The Danish Institute for infectious disease, SSI, have been calculating the impact of opening further the Danish society, one priority for the Danish Government and the Danish political parties has been to focus om small businesses impacted by the closure.

The priority has been on those that can open while still maintaining a low level of spread. Therefore, for instance, restaurants and cafes will still remain closed until 10 May, whereas your local hairdresser and physiotherapist may reopen.

The conditions for reopening are being worked out by the Danish Health Board, Sundhedsstyrelsen, as to how they can do so in as safe a way as possible. Therefore, the details are not yet public, but will be before the 20 April.

Until 10 May department stores, shopping centers, efterskoler and høj skoler. libraries and leisure activities and sports clubs must remain closed. Other political parties are putting pressure on the Danish Government to be included in the discussions about who may open in the second phase starting 10 May, maybe there will be more added to the below list before the 10 May. Next week more negotiations are expected.
