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 quarantine policy, which is based on the guidelines from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) 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 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. You can reduce the quarantine period if your child is tested for COVID-19 twice during the quarantine and receive negative test results. The first test should be done a minimum of four days after returning to Denmark. The second test should be done two days after the first test.  If your child’s first test comes back negative, your child can come back to school. Your child should still take a second test to confirm the negative test result. This rule also applies if if the country you came from was considered ‘open’ when you left Denmark but changed to ‘banned’ during your trip.

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