In a statement, Iceland’s Minister of Health, Willum Þór Þórsson, said that they can truly rejoice at this turning-point, but nonetheless, the government wants people to be careful along with practicing personal infection prevention measures. The government also recommends not to interact with others if they notice any COVID symptoms.

The government has also decided to remove all limits on social gatherings along with doing away with the quarantine requirements for people who test positive for the virus. 

After Iceland, Israel is also planning to welcome unvaccinated travelers from next month. On the other hand, France is waiving all pre-departure testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers.
