Please note: Information on this page was correct at the time of our events, from 12-22 August. The page is no longer being updated. Please visit the government websites for current information. Links to these websites can be found below.
The health, safety and well-being of the public and visitors is our highest priority. We are acting on the advice of the Danish and Swedish health authorities and police, and local and national governments.
We are committed to ensuring the safety of all participants at all of our venues. All our events are going ahead, and you can read more about all our events on our website and in our app.
EU / Schengen residents
The European Commission has published details of the Digital Green Certificate and you can read the information here. This allows entry to people who have received the EU-approved vaccines (currently Pfizer, BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson) or who have proof of a recent negative test or who have proof of recovery from COVID19 within a specified timeframe.
Non-EU / Schengen residents
Vaccinated people from OECD countries and yellow-status third countries, can enter Denmark if they can document that they have been vaccinated with an EU approved vaccine (currently Pfizer, BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson) and that 14 days have passed since the last dose.
Staying safe at Copenhagen 2021
The last eighteen months have been tough for everyone, and while we come together in Scandinavia to advocate for change, compete in EuroGames, enjoy concerts, explore culture and participate in the seventh WorldPride, we must all remember that COVID19 continues to present a risk to everyone.
There are simple steps we can all take to protect ourselves and each other.
Even if you are fully vaccinated, remember that other people may prefer to maintain a distance. Please respect other people’s needs.
Avoid touching your face and mouth and remember to wash and sanitise your hands regularly. You will find hand-washing facilities and hand sanitiser at all our venues.
Wear a mask
You should wear a mask if this makes you feel more comfortable, and anywhere that masks are required. In Copenhagen masks are required when entering and exiting public transportation and if standing during transportation. You are not required to wear a mask at our venues but you are welcome to do so.
If you feel unwell or think you may have been exposed to someone who has COVID19, please isolate immediately and take a test. Tests are free and some test centres are open 24 hours.
Coronapas (corona passport)
Coronapas is the Danish proof of vaccine, recovery from COVID19 in the last 12 months, or of a negative PCR test no more than 96 hours old. It is part of the EU Covid Digital Certificate.
You need a Coronapas – or equivalent issued by a competent national authority in your own country – to use many services including inside seating in restaurants and bars, and at many of our venues including our conferences, cultural events, and concerts.
If your country’s proof is not accepted, remember that you can take a free PCR test in Copenhagen which will give you valid proof for 96 hours from the time you took the test.
Please respect venue staff and Includers and do not attempt to enter a venue without the required proof.
Antigen testing is recommended upon arrival in Denmark from abroad and can in some cases be mandatory. Regular antigen testing is also recommended when you participate in large events.
Visit en.coronasmitte.dk for information on test centres and general information on COVID19 in Denmark. If you do not have internet access you can call (+45) 7020 0233 for information.
If you test positive for COVID19 you must call the Danish Patient Safety Authority on (+45) 3232 0511 for advice. They will ask you for information regarding your symptoms, whereabouts and personal contacts, with the purpose of contact-tracing to prevent the further spread of COVID19. Your information and cooperation helps to keep everyone safe and contain any outbreaks of COVID19.
You can also ask our volunteer Includers – wearing red shirts – for help and information. They are not able to give medical advice but they can tell you where to go for more information.
If you need urgent medical attention, call 1813. In an emergency you can call 112.
