Starting Friday, Iceland will introduce temporary Schengen border controls and will also require anyone arriving in the country to observe self-isolation for 14 days.

Starting on Friday, Alaskan restaurants, retail stores, hairdressers and nail salons will be allowed to reopen, said Alaska State Governor Mike Dunleavy.

Finland is preparing its ‘exit strategy’ from measures put in place to contain COVID-19 but said things will be done “gradually” and in a “controlled way.”
