The boarders are still closed from Sweden to Denmark. The strange thing is that the boarder are open the other way. Thousand of danes are crossing the boarder to Sweden every day. Swedes are also allowed to cross the boarder if they are working or got a relative in Denmark. The danish prime minister said last week that they will open the boarder for people from Norway and Germany the 15:th of June. But not for swedes. Read more about the restrictions on oresundsbron.com and politi.dk. Norway got another law or rule to accept. They are allowed to cross the boarder to Sweden but have to stay two weeks in quarantine after arriving back to Norway. There are a couple of norwegians that try crossing the boarder to get affordable tobacco, meat and chocolate. If the norwegian police reveals it they risk getting a 20000skr fee(about 200£).
