Such great news! Right?!

The country’s Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir just announced that Iceland’s borders will open no later than June 15.
Visitors will be given the option to take a coronavirus test at Keflavík International Airport on their way into the country instead of undergoing quarantine.

What’s also great is that the authorities expect test results to be available the same day, and those who test negative for SARS-CoV-2 will not be required to quarantine themselves. Visitors will, however, be asked to download Iceland’s official contact tracing app.

“The proposed border opening depends on the continued decline of cases in Iceland. Authorities stated it could also be implemented earlier than June 15 if preparations go well and the number of cases remains low. The testing may be used toward further research of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19.”
