Danish Regulator Spillemyndighedens Sends Staff Home

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Denmark's gaming regulator Spillemyndighedens has sent home their staff through March 29th due to the spread of the novel coronavirus and the government's decision to keep all non-essential government employees home to prevent the spread of the virus.

Spillemyndighedens employees will be working from home, and employees will take part in online meetings, rather than having in-person assemblies. The governments of various countries are facing disruptions to their gaming regulation services. Latvia isn't taking in-person visitors at their offices until April 14th, and Lithuania revealed that self-exclusion requests are only being accepted online until March 27th.

Commenting on the closure a Spillemyndighedens spokesman said, "We hope that the situation can be resolved with the fewest possible nuisances and regret the hassle it may cause."
