Kindly Cancel Criminal Plans, due to COVID-19

Vala Hafstað

The COVID-19 pandemic has not yet managed to kill some people’s sense of humor.

The Suðurnes Police Department, Southwest Iceland, posted a special note on its Facebook page yesterday:

“Due to the situation created by COVID-19, or the coronavirus, as it’s called, the police kindly ask those who have been contemplating breaking the law to cancel all such plans until further notice.”

Furthermore, the post encourages the public to do its best to have a virus-free hour from 9-10 pm, as requested by Chief Superintendent Víðir Reynisson at yesterday’s press conference on COVID-19.

Víðir closed the press conference by urging the public not to mention the coronavirus at all for one hour last night.

“Thank you for your understanding,” the Facebook post of the Suðurnes Police concludes.
