Coronavirus: Peyia Municipality sets up team to monitor compliance with decrees, help vulnerable

Peyia Municipality has set up a team to monitor compliance with decrees to contain the spread of coronavirus, Mayor Marinos Lambrou told the Cyprus News Agency in Thursday.

The team is made up of traffic wardens and two other municipality officials. They will check there are no gatherings in squares, other public areas and beaches, and will also be doing the rounds at the supermarkets and the few businesses that offer delivery.

The municipality has also set up a special unit to help residents who cannot go to the supermarkets for pharmacies. There have been three or four such cases he said.

The municipality has also started distributing the documents required to be filled to residents.

The municipality was working closely with police, Lambrou said and appealed to all residents to stay home as to break the chain of transmission.
