We have focused on seven municipalities, where the number of infections is over 20 per. 100,000 inhabitants. In addition to Aarhus, Ringsted and Silkeborg, this also applies to Glostrup, Nyborg, Solrød and Sorø, «says the Minister, who emphasizes that there is cause for concern and action in connection with the increasing number of infections.
The requirement for a face mask applies in public transport, and in addition, the recommendation is that you use it in shopping centers, supermarkets and larger shops in Silkeborg Municipality. According to Ritzau, there are also demands for face mask in public transport in several other East Jutland municipalities.
According to the media, in addition to Aarhus and Silkeborg, this also applies to Odder, Horsens, Skanderborg and Favrskov.
“Even if you live in a municipality that is not mentioned here, it is important that you realize that the infection is still in Denmark,” says the Minister of Health.
