In case you missed it: there are new coronavirus regulations now in place.

You can now take walking tours of Reykjavík with Grapevine crewmembers Valur, Pollý and Bjartmar. Click here for more details.

The most significant of these is that quarantine is no longer in effect, but border screening quarantine and domestic isolation will remain. The social gathering limit has now been raised to 200 people. More information on these new regulations can be found here.

Where daily numbers are concerned, there were 1,890 recorded domestic cases of the coronavirus in Iceland yesterday, with an additional 62 reported cases at the border.

194 are in border screening quarantine, with 11,465 in isolation. There are currently 47 people in hospital with the coronavirus and three in intensive care.

287,831 people aged five and older have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus as of February 14th, comprising 81% of this age group, or 78% of the total population. 201,261 have also received booster shots.

Getting a booster shot is a very straightforward process, with no barcode required. More information on that can be found here. For your first and second vaccination, you can sign up here.

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

More information can be found at covid.is/data and, in Icelandic, below. Bear in mind that it may take some time for daily figures to be updated in languages other than Icelandic.
