By: Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

COVID-19 is still spreading, and it’s important that we all continue to look out for one another and adhere to the official guidelines.

One of the main recommendations is to engage in social distancing and to make sure that we remember to do just that, the Danish Health Authority has created a badge, which signals that others should keep their distance.

“Anyone who’d like to remind others to keep their distance can wear this badge. For instance, you can wear it while standing in line at the grocery store or waiting for the bus.

This way, you won’t have to address anyone directly and ask them to keep their distance,” Niels Sandø, Unit Manager at the Danish Health Authority, says.

You can now pick up the badge for free at your local pharmacy.
