Everyone who comes to the country must undergo double screening and quarantine. It has been reported that people are not staying in the building where they informed the government that they were going to quarantine.

There are rumors that people pick up passengers at Kelfavík Airport, which is against the rules.
“The police have a presence in the arrivals hall and talk to people who have arrived there and are informing about these rules that apply to quarantine from the border post. This weekend we were talking about 90 cases where individuals had explicitly come to pick up passengers. “
