Information for travelers.

The Chief Epidemiologist in Iceland does not consider any travel restrictions to and from China to be necessary, but encourages individuals traveling abroad, especially in China where cases of 2019-nCoV have been confirmed to:

  • Practice good personal hygiene, especially thorough hand washing.
  • Avoid close contact with people with common cold symptoms.
  • Avoid direct unprotected contact with live animals and surfaces in contact with animals when visiting live markets.
  • Use a cloth for sneezing if you have a cold and wash your hands regularly.
  • Inform healthcare professionals about their trips if they need to seek health care in Iceland.
