The Danish parliament (Folketing) approved the introduction of requirements for face masks in shops and on public transport.

On Thursday, the Folketing also approved the government’s proposal to shorten the validity of negative corona tests, Danish TV2 reports.

From now on, such tests will only be valid for 72 hours (instead of 96 hours, as was the case up to Thursday). The so-called rapid tests will only be valid for 48 hours (previously, they were valid for 72 hours). 

“This applies to unvaccinated people who must show a negative corona test to get a valid corona certificate,” Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke said.

New meeting on Monday

The Folketing’s Epidemic Committee did not agree on several of the other measure proposals but plans to discuss these again when it meets on Monday.

Among other things, the parties disagreed on whether store employees and employees in public transport should also be required to use face masks.
