Yesterday the Icelandic government decided that the country would be open for travelers from June 15th with restrictions. Iceland will allow travelers to arrive offering three precautionary options which they can choose from. The first one is to stay in quarantine for two weeks, the second one is to provide a virus free health certificate and the third option is to take a test at the Icelandic airport and wait a few hours for the results. Obviously not many are willing to travel only for quarantine for two weeks but the other two options should be acceptable.

In Iceland we are thankfully almost through the storm with no new infections now for five days in a row and we have only 18 active cases left. Life is returning to normal with people back at work, kids is school and of course – people fishing!
