The news is official; Iceland will open on the 15th of June. deCODE Genetics will help the Icelandic government test, but the test will cost 15,000 ISK (around 113 USD) from the 1st of July. So it will be free for the first two weeks, but after that tourists need to pay for it. Also, new information, which came out after we recorded the newscast, is that tourists do not need to stay in quarantine while they wait for the results from the testing.
