All this being the case, the domestic 14-day incidence per 100,000 inhabitants is 445.1, and the 14-day incidence at the border per 100,000 inhabitants is 25.9.

279,044 have been vaccinated against the coronavirus as of November 4th, comprising 89% of those aged 12 and older. 66,842 have also received booster shots. MBL reports than some 160,000 Icelanders will be invited to get booster shots.

As always, be sure to abide the domestic restrictions and border regulations.
