Vatnajökull National Park's operations have had to adapt to the current restrictions on gatherings in Iceland and other covid control recommendations. In some areas, increased infection prevention and restrictions include increased cleaning and surveillance. Therefore, there is less capacity for e.g. educational projects. All campsites have a limit of 200 people, and the 1-meter rule applies in all areas. The national park encourages visitors to pay close attention to personal infection prevention.
