Cyprus gives up the mask indoors
As of June 1, Cypriot citizens will no longer have to wear masks to enter the interior, as the Ministry of Health has ordered the lifting of the requirement.
However, according to the press release issued by the authority, the new law does not apply to indoor spaces such as hospitals, nursing homes, facilities for vulnerable groups, health care institutions and public transport.
In addition, visits to patients in public and private medical institutions are allowed for a maximum of two people per day, provided that a PCR or antigen test has been performed 48 hours before arrival.
"It is recommended to use masks in places where a large number of people gather, for people belonging to vulnerable groups and for people interacting with people at high risk of infection", Explains the Ministry of Health in the press release.
As recommended by the Council of Ministers, COVID-19 restrictions can be removed provided that the number of positive cases of the virus decreases, in addition to the number of hospitalized persons.
The measure is good in the tourist context, given that the 2022 summer season has begun. Thus, tourists will no longer have to wear masks in restaurants, cafes and hotels.
