(Bloomberg) -- Nordea Bank Abp is urging its employees in Denmark to bring a Covid certificate when working at the office.

The biggest Nordic bank isn’t currently checking whether employees have a Covid passport, but said staff are “expected to act responsibly” and follow hygiene protocols. The purpose is to limit the spread of the virus, a Nordea spokesman said in an emailed response to questions. 

The lender also provides Covid testing at its largest locations in Denmark.

Nordea’s move comes at a time when Denmark is working on rushing through legislation that will allow employers to demand workers have a valid Covid passport. And even though those proposals are not yet in place, they do have the backing of a major labor organization.
