Denmark introduces COVID pass scheme

Denmark has launched a COVID-19 "passport" scheme that will help to allow non-essential businesses to reopen to customers. Click here to read the full story.

The "coronapas" is available via a secure app or in paper format to people who have either been fully vaccinated, have tested positive for COVID-19 two to 12 weeks previously or negative over the previous 72 hours.

It currently allows people to enter certain businesses — including hairdressers, beauty salons and driving schools — with the aim to gradually reopen the economy by the end of May.

It will be expanded to include terraces, which are due to reopen on 21 April, and restaurants, museums, theatres and cinemas from 6 May. The country is scheduled to be fully reopened on May 21 when the government estimates it will have vaccinated people over the age of 50.
