No exuberant summer holiday extravaganza here in Denmark, of course.

In spite of the opening up of society, the government just announced today that it won't recommend any other travel destinations than Norway, Iceland and Germany, until August 31st, for Danish citizens. I believe those government recommendations have importance in the field of assistance options and insurance when abroad, like it's the case of for example the occupied Crimea.

Also, only tourists from those countries will be let in, and provided that they have 1) six nights of booked accommodation in Denmark, and 2) none of those nights can be in Copenhagen.

I only planned domestic trips anyway, and I approve of strict measures in this situation, since a percentage of the population will behave like children unless told not to, but this must also be said to be hardline policy. The Swedes and other European destinations and nationalities were left out, because of higher fatalities rates. So tough times ahead for Copenhagen hotels, but they've also experienced a lot of growth in recent years, as money-making machines. I know, because I've worked at one.

Corona statistics continue to be good here, but any effects of the opening up and a generally more relaxed attitude among the public can't be established with certainty yet.
