Samples were taken from all 40 dairy farms in the area and sent to the University of Iceland for testing. All other samples came back negative, according to the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority (MAST).
The disease does not pose a risk to humans and cannot be transferred via agricultural products, Fréttablaðið reported last week.
It is not yet known how far the disease has spread but the results of tests from all dairy farms in the country are expected next week.
This is the first time that such a disease is reported in Iceland.
