Denmark has closed 13 small border crossings since Saturday night due to the increased number of infections in Flensburg. Flensburg’s mayor is also pushing for stronger controls.

As the Ministry of Justice announced in Copenhagen on Friday, controls at the other border crossings will be tightened significantly. Justice Minister Nick Haekkerup said the measure was necessary to keep new chains of infection out of the country. If you currently want to travel to Denmark, you have to present a negative corona test that is a maximum of 72 hours old since Saturday night.

Lange calls for a catch-all

Those who drive from Denmark to Germany, on the other hand, are rarely checked at the border. At the council meeting in Flensburg on Thursday evening, Lord Mayor Simone Lange (SPD) therefore emphasized that she wanted to work with the state government at the federal level for border controls.  The  district administrator of the Schleswig-Flensburg district, Wolfgang Buschmann (independent), also supports the project, “because we urgently need to catch up and have a higher level of control,” said Lange.
