Due to COVID-19, the Icelandic government has implemented a ban on gatherings over 100 people which will last at least four weeks or until April 13th. This ban has, understandably, affected events throughout the city. But don’t worry! Reykjavík hasn’t turned into a ghost town. Most bars and restaurants are still open but have added extra safety measures. These include letting fewer people in and going cashless to minimise contact.
The majority of events planned for this week have been cancelled or are under revision. So instead of recommending specific things that might get cancelled later this week, we are advising you to simply walk down Laugavegur Street and see where the noise takes you.
There is still no travel ban in Iceland, and this latest ban only affects groups of over 100 individuals. Everybody is working together on keeping the country and the people in it safe. For the latest information about the COVID-19 virus in Iceland, check out this article.
