Corona virus - Appropriate measures

Guidance for guests

Due to the Corona virus COVID-19, that has now been diagnosed in Iceland, Harpa has made precautionary measures in accordance with the Directorate of health.

Safety of our guests, event organizers and Harpa staff is in highest priority.

Main areas of the building are being cleaned more frequently and special attention is being paid to frequently touched objects and surfaces. Additionally, alcohol-based hand sanitizes have been made available for conference guests.

All equipment that Harpa rents out such as microphones, pointers, keyboards and mice are disinfected between speakers and presenters.

Guidance for guests

  • Regularly and thoroughly clean hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash with soap and hot water.
  • Maintain good hygiene and avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Avoid shaking hands or excessive contact with people during events.
  • Practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and wash hands).
  • Maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid directly touching frequently used surfaces in public places such as buttons in elevators, handrails, touchscreens and doorknobs.
  • People that experience flu-like symptoms should contact the national helpline +354 544 4113 for further guidance.
