Denmark Extends Limits on Crowd Sizes to Tackle Covid-19

(Bloomberg) --

Denmark provided more guidelines on when it might be possible for large groups of people to gather again, as the authorities try to map a path back toward normalcy from the lockdown triggered by Covid-19.

A cap of 500 people on crowd sizes will hold until Sept. 1, according to a statement on Tuesday. In the meantime, bans on groups of more than 10 will continue to apply until May 10. If there are signs of a resurgence of the coronavirus, the 10-person limit will hold longer.

Denmark has opened primary schools and allowed some small business to resume their work after the government said its early restrictions helped contain the spread of Covid-19.
