  • Central Jutland (42.3)

Applies from Saturday 00:00

The changes in the recommendations apply from, and including, Saturday 15th August. All travellers from "red countries", including those who have recently become red, will then be required to be in quarantine for 10 days.

NIPH submits an assessment of the infection situation in the EU, EEA and Schengen countries every two weeks. Updates may occur more frequently if a country, or a region in a Nordic country, has an infection situation that is becoming worse. The Government makes the decision about which countries and regions require entry quarantine.

Yellow countries

The Government has decided to introduce a category for "yellow" countries. As a result, all the countries where entry quarantine is not required are now yellow.
