The nightlife in Aarhus and Silkeborg must not extend the opening hours

Phase 4 of the reopening is expected to take effect on 19 August, the Ministry of the Elderly and Health informs TV 2.

When the opening hours for restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes in Denmark are extended from 00.00 to 02.00, it will be without the Jutland cities Aarhus and Silkeborg.

This is stated by the Ministry of Health and the Elderly to TV 2.

In the past week, the health authorities have had a special focus on Aarhus and Silkeborg, and local measures have been initiated to prevent the spread of infection. On the basis of the health authorities’ recommendation, it is therefore also stipulated in the new executive order that the new provision on extending opening hours for restaurants, bars, cafes and the like from 24 to 02 shall not apply to Aarhus and Silkeborg municipalities, it reads in an email.

The announcement comes after the government and parliamentary parties on Friday agreed on a new version of the reopening phase 4.

The new agreement is expected to enter into force on 19 August, the Ministry of the Elderly and Health informs TV 2.

Aarhus and Silkeborg have been among the municipalities that have recently had a marked increase in the infection rates for coronavirus.

Over the weekend, 114 new cases of infection have been found in Aarhus Municipality against 20 infected in the last seven days in Silkeborg Municipality.

This is stated by the Statens Serum Institut.

The cities must therefore wait for the development in the infection figures before the citizens can once again look forward to a nightlife after midnight.

– The authorities are following the development closely and will continuously assess when the special rules for Aarhus and Silkeborg can be repealed, it is stated in the email from the Ministry of the Elderly and Health.

Nightclubs and discos still closed

The agreement also stipulates that no new guests will be admitted after 11 pm.

It also states that places where nightclubs or discos are run must remain closed until 31 October.

However, it sounds like discos or nightclubs can stay open if they change their decor and activities so that they comply with the rules that apply to restaurants.
