Covid-19 related questions

What is the current Covid-19 situation in Denmark?

Arrow down

As a visitor in Denmark, you can expect to meet an open society. The Danish government no longer considers Covid-19 a “socially critical disease” and has lifted previous COVID-19 restrictions, including a face mask mandate in cinemas and other cultural institutions and in public transportation. Restrictions have also been lifted in bars and restaurants, shopping centres, sports centres, etc. based on recommendations by the Danish Health Authorities.

Denmark has high vaccination rates (more than 80 percent of the entire population has been fully vaccinated) and a strong health infrastructure.

COVID-19 infections are decreasing in Denmark (17,000 over the last 3 weeks in February), and the Danish authorities are expecting the tendency to continue in March.

The Danish movie theatres and other venues are open, so CPH:DOX will have physical film screenings and events all over Copenhagen.

Are there any special Covid-19 related requirements for on-site participation at CPH:DOX’ events? Will there be any special sanitary precautions?

Arrow down

CPH:DOX is following the official Covid-19 guidelines by the Danish government.

Thus, CPH:DOX is not expected to introduce any special Covid-19 requirements for on-site participation – such as face mask or corona pass.
