Latest news about COVID-19 virus

Esbjerg Municipality has taken all the necessary steps to make sure, we follow the new governmental recommendations to stop and limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Extention of many restrictions until 5 April 

From 1 March a partial and regional reopening will begin. The current restrictions on all other areas are, however, extended until and including 5 April 2021. For instance there is still a ban on events and gatherings of more than 5 people.

For now, Esbjerg Municipality is not one of the municipalities included in further reopening of schools. Secondary schooling and youth educations will therefore remain digital.

From 1 March the assembly ban for outdoor sports and association activities will be lifted. By then, up to 25 people will be allowed to gather. In addition, outdoor cultural institutions can open if they meet the demand of a negative coronate test that is a maximum of 72 hours old. 

We will continuously update this website with new information about how our municipality will follow the recommendations from the Danish authorities.
