Due to Covid progress in Iceland the Health Authorities have now allowed a full scale in-person Assembly!

Guidelines on gatherings at the Arctic Circle Assembly:

  • A maximum of 500 persons are allowed in each section of the Assembly. The Plenary Hall will contain two sections.
  • The 500 persons cap does not apply to the Harpa foyer, as it is defined as an open space.
  • Social distancing rules do not apply to seated events nor is there a requirement of face masks in such cases.
  • Participants are to maintain social distancing of one meter and use face masks if that is not possible.

Participants need to provide a negative result from a COVID-19 test, taken no longer than 48 hours in advance. Valid tests are either a rapid antigen test or a PCR test.

Rapid testing will be made available at Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center.
