The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have spread to Greenland, an autonomous territory of the Kingdom of Denmark, in March 2020. As of 3 April, there have been ten confirmed cases, but none in need of hospitalization.
"Preparations have been initiated to cope with the new situation. It is important that citizens follow our recommendations now that the infection has reached our country," Greenland's Prime Minister Kim Kielsen told a press conference, according to newspaper Sermitsiaq. All non-essential flights to and from Greenland, as well as domestic flights, are strongly advised against. Public gatherings of more than 100 people are discouraged and citizens returning from high-risk areas are recommended to self-isolate for two weeks.
On 28 March the government prohibited the sale of alcoholic drinks until 15 April 2020 in Greenland.
