Coronavirus: Arriving passengers to be quarantined at Rodon Hotel

Passengers arriving in Cyprus will be quarantined for two weeks at the Rodon Hotel in Agros, the company Proodos which owns it announced on Thursday.

In an announcement to shareholders, it said that it was responding to the call of the state to contribute to the effort to address the problems created by the the coronavirus outbreak.

“The Rodon Hotel has accepted the proposal and reached agreement with the Republic of Cyprus to host permanent residents of Cyprus who come from abroad and must be self-isolated for 14 days because of Covid-19, it said.

It also told shareholders that the agreement may mitigate in part in the negative results it had referred to in its profit warning on March 16.

At least 600 Cypriots are trying to beat the clock and return to Cyprus before the airports close at 3 am on Saturday for two weeks.

All must do 14 days quarantine and deputy tourism minister Savvas Perdios yesterday appealed to hoteliers to enter into agreements with the state to host them.
