Bases begin to ease measures in-step with RoC

The British Bases said on Thursday that they too will begin relaxing restrictive measures introduced because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In an announcement, they said that following President Anastasiades’ announcement on April 30 that the Republic of Cyprus will begin the phased easing of measures relating to the COVID-19 outbreak on Monday May 4, the Bases can confirm it remains in-step with the Government.

The drawdown measures in the Bases, like in the Republic of Cyprus, will see the relaxation occur in phases and beginning on Monday.

Commander British Forces Cyprus and SBA Administrator, Major General Rob Thomson, said: “As we ease the measures in the battle against COVID-19, it is important that we as an Administration remain in-step with the RoC.

“We have been very successful so far in limiting the spread of this virus and this is not the time to drop our guard. We must remain vigilant and continue to respect social distancing and all the movement restriction measures that remain in place.”

The Bases, working in tandem with the RoC Ministry of Health and other Governmental departments, successfully implemented lockdown measures throughout the SBAs in March and have so far only had nine members of its community test positive for COVID-19, all of whom have now fully recovered.
