Denmark Seals Borders, Travelers Stranded At Airport

The Copenhagen Post reports:

In the wake of Denmark closing its borders today at noon, the Copenhagen Police has revealed that any stranded passengers must remain in the airport in order to reduce the chance of spreading the coronavirus. The police said they would reach out to the airlines in cases regarding stranded passengers from abroad.

Denmark’s decision yesterday to temporarily suspend entry into Denmark until April 13 means that anyone who is not Danish will be unable to enter Denmark – unless it is an exceptional emergency or connected to an official work capacity. Visiting family is not a good enough reason.

CPH Airport expects some 140 flights carrying about 9,000 passengers to arrive after the border closes today at noon. Goods, particularly food products, will still be able to enter Denmark and restrictions do not impact truckers delivering them.
