In light of the developments in COVID-19 infection levels in Denmark, the Ministry of Higher Education and Science, on the recommendation of the national health authorities, has sent students home. And recommending that employees at all higher education institutions work from home.

The authorities are working to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Denmark to the best possible extent, in order to limit the consequences of the virus. This includes protecting particularly vulnerable groups and avoiding placing too great a pressure on the capacity of the healthcare system.

One measure was to send all higher education students home for an initial two week period from Friday March 13, 2020. The same applied for all other public sector employees and employees at higher education institutions. They were also sent home for an initial two week period from Friday March 13. Only employees essential for critical functions, should be physically present at the institutions.

The Government has now decided to extended the initiatives already in place to limit the spread of COVID-19. The initiatives will be extended up to and including 13 April 2020.
