COPENHAGEN (dpa-AFX) – For the first time in months, thin people can go to the hairdresser again or, if interested, get a tattoo. Since Tuesday, service providers such as hairdressers, tattooists, masseurs and beauticians have been able to serve customers almost all over the country, and tanning studios and driving schools are also allowed to reopen in Germany’s northernmost neighbor. However, customers should be able to show a maximum 72 hours old negative corona test, a vaccination against Covid-19 or a survived infection on their smartphone.
There has also been more going on in the Danish schools since Monday: After the children up to the fourth grade were allowed to go back to their classrooms, the older students can now return to face-to-face classes at least part-time – that means every other week. A few communities in which the number of new infections are currently too high are excluded from the easing.
The easing of these corona measures is part of a long-term plan with which Denmark will gradually reduce the restrictions on public life. The stated goal is to gradually phase out the measures, with a few exceptions, until all risk groups and all people over 50 who wish to have received their first vaccination against Covid-19. The prerequisite for this, however, is that the corona numbers do not suddenly skyrocket again. At the moment they are still at a stable level in Denmark, which is below that of Germany in terms of population and is one of the lowest in Europe./trs/DP/jha
