There were no new cases of community-transmitted COVID-19 infections in Iceland on Friday or Saturday, RÚV reports, and significantly fewer people are currently in quarantine due to the virus.
Three people tested positive for COVID-19 at the border on Saturday, at least one of which was an old, inactive infection.
Two hundred and seventy-four people were in quarantine on Saturday. This is a significant drop from the 441 people who had been in quarantine only the day before. Such precautions were taken after a soccer player who returned from the US in mid-June tested positive for the virus days after arriving home, even though her initial border screening came back negative.
A total of 1,794 people were tested for COVID-19 at the Icelandic border on Saturday, the largest number of border tests to have been given in a single day thus far.
