Government makes changes in Covid-19 restrictions

Up to 500 people may now gather in organized groups. This is one of the changes to the Covid-19 recommendations, presented by the Faroese Government today.

All vaccinated persons, whose vaccine was administered at least eight days prior, are not required to stay at home for four days after arrival to the Faroe Islands. Testing at the borders will continue until 30 June.

New recommendations

Travel

- PCR tests on the border until 30. Juni, until further notice. Travellers pay for the test.

- All vaccinated travellers to the Faroe Islands, who have been vaccinated at least eight days prior do not need to self-isolate for four days after arrival.

- For everyone else, the recommendation to quarantine at home for four days and to test again after the fourth day after arrival.

- Children under 12 years will now be offered a PCR test for free at the border.

- We recommend limited international travel until vaccinations have been completed. After that, we will refer people to the official travel guidelines on relevant websites.

Public recommendations still in effect

Apply good hygiene. Wash your hands often and well. Sanitize your hands if you do not have access to soap and water.
Cough and sneeze in your sleeve, not in your hands.
Limit physical contact with others, for example shaking hands, hugging etc.
Be especially careful in situations where many people are gathered.
Remember to keep two metres distance from others. In organized settings, such as in restaurants, theatres, and cinemas, one metre is sufficient.
