Denmark To Allow Reopening Of Entire Retail Sector From Monday

Danish shopping malls will be allowed to open again on Monday as the Nordic country enters its second phase of reopening after the coronavirus lockdown, the government has said.

Smaller stores have already reopened but the entire retail sector, including shopping malls, will be allowed to reopen from May 11, and restaurants and cafes one week later.

The result of negotiations with neighbouring countries about border controls and travel bans will be announced by June 1, the government said.

Welcome Move

Commenting on the move, business group Dansk Erhverv welcomed the government's decision.

"Dansk Erhverv is very pleased with the large and wide reopening," said Brian Mikkelsen, CEO of Dansk Erhverv. "It is good news that several parts of the Danish business community can now work again. Many have waited and been ready for a long time, and now they can finally get started.

"But the crisis has left a deep mark, so it is important that there is continued focus on initiatives that can support the business community and thus secure Danish jobs. It will be needed," he added.
