Covid-19 measures during the 6th EGP Congress
To create a safe environment, especially for the most vulnerable, we ask all participants to self-test before travelling to the Congress and undertake their travels only if the result is negative. Anyone who presents Covid-19 symptoms at any point before or during the event is kindly asked not to attend.
We recommend wearing masks, especially in spaces and instances where participants are close to each other, such as closed meeting rooms, plenary, etc. We kindly ask you to bring your own masks.
Currently, there are no covid-19 related restrictions on entry to Denmark. General covid-19 restrictions no longer apply, with a few exceptions: airplanes might require covid-19 vaccination certificates, and mask wearing might be compulsory when visiting social institutions and hospitals. More official information can be found here.
