Chief Epidemiologist Þórólfur Guðnason is out of quarantine after he tested negative for COVID-19 today, RÚV reports.

Þórólfur went into quarantine last Thursday when a staff member with the Directorate of Health tested positive for the virus. He was tested on his first day of quarantine and again today. Both tests were negative.

Chief Superintendent with the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Response Víðir Reynisson, another face of Iceland’s Coronavirus pandemic response, recently returned to work after a bout of COVID-19. Víðir’s illness was severe and although he is back to work, he is yet to recover his full strength.
