No further Covid restrictions in the pipeline

Prime Minister Bárður á Steig Nielsen told KvF yesterday that there are currently no plans to introduce new Covid restrictions, despite the high number of active cases.

The Covid situation is under control, according to chief medical officer Lars Fodgaard Møller. However, he adds, recent contact tracing efforts have revealed that very few people are following the recommendation to get tested two days after arriving from abroad.

“This is a problem,” he says. “It is crucial that everyone follows this recommendation.”
