Because of corona mutations: Denmark tightened entry rules | – News – Schleswig-Holstein


Status: 02/15/2021 1:36 p.m.

For fear of the virus mutation, which first appeared in South Africa, the results of corona rapid tests can only be three days old.

From Wednesday Denmark will once again tighten the entry rules for cross-border commuters. So far, they had to show a rapid corona test that was no more than a week old. Now it’s a maximum of three days.

With the tightening, the Danish Ministry of Justice wants to prevent the South African virus mutation from spreading further. However, the declaration does not mention the variant that appeared for the first time in Great Britain. This mutation had recently been detected more and more frequently on both sides of the border, especially in Flensburg.

 The  new 72-hour rule also applies to Schleswig-Holstein residents who have a special reason to enter, for example to visit close relatives.
