Information on COVID-19 (Corona virus) in Iceland
Meet in Reykjavík follows the recommendations of the Icelandic authorities in regards to covid-19 (Corona virus).
All information, developments, and advice about Iceland and COVID-19 can be found at the website of the Directorate of Health and the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management.
We encourage everyone to take good care of their health, wash their hands thoroughly and be mindful of cleanliness.
Icelandic authorities have taken preventive steps to contain the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus in the country. As Iceland has few entry points and the lowest population density in Europe, the country has been able to move swiftly to identify, communicate with and, where necessary, quarantine Icelandic residents who have been travelling from high-risk areas and those who have been in contact with infected individuals.

Those who have traveled from areas with a high risk of infection and have cold-like symptoms should contact the Healthline 1700 (+354 544 4113 for those calling from a non-Icelandic phone number). The helpline is always the first point of contact and people must always call before going to hospitals or clinics to avoid possible spread of infection.
