Denmark.- The Danish government has said that casinos and gaming halls in the country will not be able to reopen until at least April 5.
The government has extended Covid-19 restrictions for at least another month after venues were temporarily closed in December.
The closure was due to end on February 28 but while some businesses have now been allowed to reopen, including non-essential shops in some areas, the government said that Covid-19 cases were still too high to allow gaming venues to reopen.
