Iceland, one of the first countries in the world to lift all restrictions to limit "Covid 19" for immunized tourists, announced new measures, following a rise in the number of corona infections.
According to Agence France-Presse, from midnight Sunday until August 13, public gatherings of more than 200 people will be prohibited, the rules of spatial distancing set at a distance of one meter will be re-imposed, and bars and restaurants will have to close before midnight.
Swimming pools and indoor sports facilities are allowed to operate at 75 percent of their capacity, and the use of masks indoors will be mandatory.
Iceland also decided to re-impose restrictions on its borders, with the requirement to present a negative “BCR” test conducted less than 72 hours ago for travelers who received all vaccine doses.
Although more than 85 percent of the population over 16 years of age received two doses of the vaccine against Corona, Iceland has witnessed a surge in infections that reached 355 since the 12th of July.
