14-Day Quarantine Policy

In order to safeguard the ISH community and prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is essential that all students, parents and staff members, as well as visitors, respect our 14-day quarantine policy, which is based on the guidelines from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Denmark.

If you have recently arrived in Denmark from abroad, please click on the link below to see if the country you just left is ‘open’ or ‘banned’. The list is updated weekly by the SSI (Statens Serum Institut).


  • If the country you came from is considered “open”, you do not have to quarantine.
  • If the country you came from is considered “banned”, the MFA strongly advises you to stay home for 14 days after returning from your trip and you MUST wait for 14 days before coming to school. It may be possible to reduce the quarantine period if your family is tested for COVID-19 during the quarantine and receive a negative test result. Families will be asked to show evidence of a negative test result if returning to school before completing the required 14-days of quarantine.  

Please note that the recommendations and rules from MFA are subject to change so make sure to stay updated with the latest information here:
