UPDATES ON COVID- 19 IN ICELAND: Double Screening And 4-5 Day Quarantine For All Arrivals!
As for August 14, 2020 From August 19th, all travellers arriving in Iceland will be required to under go two COVID-19 screenings and quarantine for 4-5 days in between tests, the health ministry announced today. Arrivals will be tested once at the border and a second time several days later. Until they have received the results of the second testing 4-5 days later, they will be required to quarantine. The changes will be implemented no later than August 19th. Previously several countries had been exempt from border screenings, this is no longer the case. The only passengers who are exempt from the new rules are those born in 2005 or later. Until now the double screening requirement only applied to returning Icelandic citizens and residents and visitors staying longer than 10 days.
