Whole swathes of the EU and Schengen countries are set to become "green" on Saturday, as Denmark adjusts its travel advisory. This is what the map of travel guidelines is likely to look like.

Denmark on Saturday will enact its fourth phase of lifting of travel restrictions, at which point all EU and Schengen countries and regions currently classed as “yellow” will be given the revived “green” category in Denmark’s traffic-light travel scheme. 

This means that those travelling to or back to Denmark from most places in the EU and Schengen countries will not need to be show a test before departure or on arrival in Denmark, and will not need to isolate, making travel considerably easier.
