As of Tuesday 20 October, masks will be required everywhere in Iceland, as it is not possible to ensure a two-meter distance, says the news RÚV.
Other changes in disease prevention mean that outside the capital, no one can attend spectator sports events. In the capital area, all training in connection with sports is prohibited. Most disease prevention will remain unchanged and will be valid for an additional 2 to 3 weeks. A constant reassessment of the situation will take place during this time. There will be no change in the way schools operate.
Among other changes, the maximum number of people allowed in any space at the same time around the country will be 20. Sports activities that do not require communication will be allowed in the capital area for a maximum of 20 people without spectators, provided that the two-meter rule is maintained. All sports and leisure activities for children in pre-school and primary school, who require contact, are not permitted in the capital area.
The public is still encouraged to stay home as much as possible.
