Denmark on Friday proposed to fast-track legislation permitting workplaces to mandate a digital “corona pass” for workers in its latest measure to curb the 3rd wave of infections. Earlier in the week, the govt. ordered Danes to present a pass when they visit indoor bars, restaurants, and other public places. usually shown by a phone app, the pass verifies that the holder is immunized, has tested negative, or has recently recovered from infection.
Under the proposed new legislation agreed on Friday in principle between the govt., unions, and employer associations, bosses can commit to mandating employees to show passes though the employers won’t be obliged to do that.
If the agreement comes into law as expected next week, Denmark is a part of being part of a growing number of countries taking similar measures.
“We have made an agreement, which might offer greater security in the workplace and hopefully help Denmark get through the winter as well as possible,” interim business minister Mattias Tesfaye said in a statement.
“We do this for the sake of the Danish economy and to keep the jobs going.”
Daily infections in Denmark have risen steadily to 3,000 in present days from a low of simply over 200 in mid-September. The rate of positive tests has become twice in the past weeks in early November.
