Copenhagen Municipality has asked heads of department to send administrative staff to work from home, the city said.
The decision comes after health authorities and Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke on Monday asked businesses in 18 municipalities in the greater Copenhagen area, as well in Odense, to consider working from home.
The two areas are currently seeing an increase in Covid-19 infections and local restrictions are set to take effect there from Wednesday.
Another municipality in the greater Copenhagen area, Ballerup, has said that around half of its staff would be working from home for the next two weeks.
Staff from non-public facing sections of Ballerup’s municipal administration are like to be asked to work remotely.
Odense Municipality responded to the government request Monday by saying it would send employees home.
The municipality’s city director Stefan Birkebjerg Andersen said that around 2,000 municipal employees would be affected.
