Did you ever wonder what the swimming pools in ReykjavÃk look like these days, when closed? Steinar ÃžÃ³r Ã“lafsson, 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.
â€œFor a very long time, Iâ€™ve wanted to do this,â€ he states. Normally, the Laugardalslaug pool is closed only one day a year, and you donâ€™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.â€ Obtaining permission to film the pools proved easy, Steinar adds.See Iceland Monitor
