Denmark’s parliament will ease a lockdown imposed shortly after Christmas by agreeing to open retail stores nationally and schools in some regions with falling cases of Covid-19.

The Nordic nation will also allow groups of as many as 25 people to participate in outdoor sports and culture activities. Other restrictions including closures of restaurants and bars will continue through April 5.

The deal will have a positive gross domestic product effect at 2 billion kroner ($327 million) each month and 37,000 Danes will return to work, according to a statement from the Finance Ministry. The decision to ease restrictions will increase the number of hospitalizations in coming weeks to as many as 880 people, according to forecasts from a group of experts. Denmark’s capacity for Covid-related ICU beds is at 940.

“There are many caveats and uncertainties and we will monitor the reopening closely,” Health Minister Magnus Heunicke told reporters in Copenhagen. “Should the development in contamination leave room for further reopening, we will of course do so accordingly.”

The Social Democrat government gathered support for the reopening from parties in its supporting bloc. Previous deals have been made with a broad majority in parliament, but opposition parties wanted a larger reopening to include schools nationally and smaller businesses like hair dressers.
