All coronavirus restrictions have been lifted in Iceland. The masks were removed from the citizens and allowed to hug. “We are returning to a comfortable life,” the authorities announced.
On the official website of the Icelandic government, a message appeared about the cancellation of all measures that were introduced to combat the spread of COVID-19.
The restrictions came into effect in March 2021. To date, 87% of the country’s population has received the first dose of the vaccine. About 60% of adults are vaccinated with both doses.
From June 27, residents of Iceland are not required to observe the mask regime and social distance. Meetings with any number of participants are allowed.
“We are returning to a comfortable life in society and to the routine we were striving for,” announced the head of the Icelandic Ministry of Health, Svandis Svavarsdottir.
Iceland is likely to become the first country in Europe to no longer have coronavirus restrictions, according to Bloomberg.
From July 1, tourists entering the country do not even need to take PCR tests. It is enough to show a certificate of vaccination or a certificate that a person has had COVID-19.
