The border between Sweden and Denmark closed at midnight on Monday, December 21, 2020. All vehicles on their way to Sweden are stopped and checked after the toll station on the Swedish side of the Oresund Bridge. The government announced at a press conference on Monday that the border with Denmark is closing due to the spread of a new coronavirus mutation, and to prevent Danes from going to Sweden for their Christmas shopping.
