Did you ever wonder what the swimming pools in Reykjavík look like these days, when closed? Steinar Þór Ólafsson, communications director, visited them recently to take a look.
All swimming pools in the capital are have remained closed since October 7, in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Steinar tells mbl.is the closure gave him reason to record the pools on video.
“For a very long time, I’ve wanted to do this,” he states. Normally, the Laugardalslaug pool is closed only one day a year, and you don’t want to bring a drone to a pool full of people. I saw this as an ideal opportunity to take a look at them.” Obtaining permission to film the pools proved easy, Steinar adds.See Iceland Monitor
