Icelanders have relaxed the COVID-19 restrictions. The Gathering Ban is now 20. 100 can sit together at the theatre and you can go to the gym (in groups). Also, Icelanders are getting more vaccines than was expected, although the vaccination process is still going quite slow. At the same time, five deaths are being investigated in connection with the vaccine. That said, all of these people were very old and sick so no conclusions can be drawn so far. This and more on the Reykjavík Newscast today.

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.
