Denmark has announced the closure of restaurants, bars, and cultural establishments.  These restrictions go into effect today and are set to last until the end of the year.

The Danish government announced that they will be aiding companies by paying 75% of an employee’s salary who would have otherwise been terminated due to the coronavirus.  For hourly employees, the government will pay up to 90% of employee salaries, capped at 26,000 Danish kroner.

This change in law will retroactively go in to effect from March 9, 2020 to June 9, 2020.
