Above the limit: Parish in Aalborg is closed down

by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

As we previously reported, eight parishes in Aalborg were in danger of closing down yesterday.

However, based on the number of infected, the authorities have decided to only close Vor Frelsers Sogn (Vor Frelsers Parish) in the west part of Aalborg. Aalborg Municipality has officially announced this.

If you’re unsure of what part of town is closed, see the map below.

Schools close down

This means that Language Center Aalborg, Aalborg Handelsskole on Saxogade and Strandvejen as well as Sct. Mariæ Skole has closed down.

With an incidence of coronavirus cases in the past seven days of 659.3, 43 newly infected, and 2.71 percent infected among those who are tested for corona, Vor Frelser Parish in Aalborg Municipality is automatically closed down from today, May 25. 

“Unfortunately, the infection has risen so much in parts of Aalborg that we have close down temporarily. It is really frustrating, and it will especially target those educations and associations that are located in the area.
