Social distancing is very important during this time, whether it is on the street, in grocery shops and during essential travels by public transport, with at least a 2-metre distance from others.

These are the main rules to follow in Copenhagen to prevent the coronavirus from spreading:

  • It is compulsory to wear face masks on public transport across the country
  • It is now compulsory to wear masks when in cafes and restaurants during ordering and walking around the establishment. It is ok to take the masks off while sitting down. 
  • Schools, restaurants, theatres, cinemas and retail stores have recently reopened
  • Bars and restaurants stay open until 10pm
  • Indoor sports halls, gyms, training centres, swimming pools and similar venues allowed to reopen, with training equipment to be be disinfected after each use

Copenhagen Coronavirus Travel Information

Portugal, Malta, Ireland, The UK  and all of Sweden (except the region of Västerbotten) are off-limits for tourism under the country’s new travel guidelines, published on Thursday, June 26th 2020. Travel to and from other EU and Schengen countries is now allowed without restriction. For more information regarding this, click here.

The Danish government offers the privilege for non-EU residents if they have been in a relationship with a Danish resident for a certain period of time (usually 3 months or longer) and under the condition that they have met in person. People who were in this situation organised online petitions with hashtags such as #LoveIsEssential and #LoveIsNotTourism pledging to get tested for the coronavirus at their own expense. As a result, the Danish government reacted and set up a system that allowed just this. Denmark is the first country to implement a “sweetheart” exemption.

 

Copenhagen Airport Information

Official websites are doing a great job at keeping travellers well updated and at providing the latest information on the Copenhagen Covid situation. You can read about the impact of coronavirus on your travel arrangements on the official websites of Copenhagen’s Airport.

The number of flights from Copenhagen Airport significantly decreased but the airport is still operating and supporting the airport traffic.

Check with your airline company to find out about any alterations of your travel plans. The Danish Government advises all passengers to avoid long-distance travels unless absolutely necessary.

Copenhagen Public Transport

Public transport in Copenhagen is still operating, despite the Copenhagen Covid situation.

Copenhagen has very well structured public transport and it takes you everywhere you need to go. Passengers can use public transport for essential journeys, however, a few important rules must be considered.

  • Fellow passengers must keep a distance from each other
  • If possible, it is advised to travel outside of peak-hours
  • If a train is full or almost full, please wait for the next train
  • If you feel unwell or sick, have a weakened immune system or are at an increased risk of infection, please avoid taking public transport
  • Choose the bicycle or walking for short trips in order to avoid crowds in public transport

The city took actions in order to prevent the spread of the virus in the following ways:

  • Train stations are closed from 00 h to 5 h for maintenance
  • Trains and stations are cleaned more frequently
  • More trains are put in operation in order to avoid overcrowding

Copenhagen Attractions

Famous old Nyhavn port in the center of Copenhagen; Copenhagen iconic view

Most Copenhagen attractions have started to reopen. Here, you can keep yourself informed on attraction reopenings, daily opening and closing times and information on reduced capacity.

In the case that certain locations close again due to changes in restrictions, you can still enjoy some of these attractions after they are open again if you are staying in Copenhagen for a longer period of time.

Here is the list of Copenhagen’s iconic attractions and their official websites with the latest updates:

 

What to do while currently in Copenhagen

  • Read/Write

If you’re at home, you probably have a shelf full of books that you’ve always wanted to read but never got to. Or perhaps you have some texts that you’ve saved on your phone under “read later.” This is the perfect time to take your mind off the current stressful situation and dive into a literary world, at least for a an hour or two a day.

Also, writing or keeping a journal and getting those thoughts and feelings out on paper can be a true stress reliever during times like these.

  • Keep the communication going with your loved ones

You can use this time to reconnect with your loved ones through different video options online. Keeping everyone up-to-date about yourself, making sure everyone is healthy and well and “making someones’ day” by giving them a good laugh is a great way to maintain strong relations even when you cannot physically spend time together.

Virtual coffees and dinner dates with a friend, family member, a loved one, or a “double-date” even with another couple is the thing to do during these corona times. Why not enjoy someones’ company while everyone stays in the comfort of their home? Times like these sometimes ask us to adapt to another lifestyle, but why not make the best of it?

  • Yoga/Stretching

As we all know, keeping active is crucial to our well-being. When you’re stuck inside for a longer period of time and running or going to the gym is no longer an option, yoga and stretching are the way to go. These are activities you can do on your own floor or balcony. There are many videos online that you can follow while doing these activities, and you can also tune into live-stream yoga classes available online.

  • Take a walk on the beach

One of the many great things about Copenhagen, besides beautiful architecture and charming streets with cosy cafes, bars and restaurants, is that the the beach is very close. Right in the city! You can take a beautiful uninterrupted walk on the beach, feel the fresh air and enjoy the calming sound of waves. Oh, and you can avoid people! Amagerstrand Park is a perfect place close to the city where you can reconnect with nature.

 

protect yourself from coronavirus

The entire LuggageHero team wish you good health and positive vibes!
