Those who have tested positive for coronavirus and recovered less than six months ago can now get a coronavirus pass on the Min Sundhed health app.

The long-awaited immunity pass began being offered on Wednesday, with Sundhed.dk, which is responsible for the app, announcing the news on its home page.

The passes can be obtained by anyone who has tested positive for coronavirus via a PCR test within the last 180 days, and will be available from 14 days after they test positive. 

You obtain the pass by logging in to this page on the sundhed.dk website, or on the Min Sundhed app. 

Those who have tested positive after receiving an antigen or rapid test will not be eligible for a pass. 

Previously, it has theoretically been possible to use a document showing a positive PCR test in lieu of a coronavirus pass, but it was up to the holder and the management of the bar, restaurant, museum, or other venue or institution they are visiting to work out the 180-day limit themselves. 

Many of those who had tested positive for coronavirus in previous months have found it easier to instead get a negative test and a pass on the app. 

Coronavirus passes have been a central plank of Denmark’s strategy to lift restrictions over the past month, with a valid pass required to enter most public places which are indoors.
