From Iceland — Reykjavík Newscast #3: Free tests, Presidents and Bars Opening Again


Reykjavík Newscast #3: Free tests, Presidents and Bars Opening Again

Published May 20, 2020

In this episode of Grapevine Newscast, we go over the newest developments of the opening of the Icelandic borders which are scheduled for the 15th of June; the upcoming presidential elections; and a few words about the bars and the swimming pools. Iceland only has three active confirmed cases of COVID-19, and only four have contracted the virus in May.

Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
