Cyprus lifts Covid-19 mask requirement for indoor areas

Cyprus on Wednesday lifted the coronavirus mask requirement for indoor areas except for hospitals, senior people’s homes and closed structures of vulnerable groups.

“Over the last few weeks, there has been a steady trend in all epidemiological indicators and a further decrease in the number of hospitalised individuals, which raises the need to revise and update the protective measures to contain Covid-19, aiming to increase individual responsibility and awareness among citizens for compliance with personal protection measures,” the Health Ministry had announced.

Cyprus scrapped several restrictions imposed due to Covid-19 in April, ahead of the summer season.

Tourism is expected to recover from two-year-long little to no activity.

More specifically, since April 18, travellers enter Cyprus without having to present the Cyprus Flight Pass or a passenger locator form which was considered an essential travel document.

At the same time, the categorisation of travellers based on their countries’ epidemiological situation has been abolished, meaning that travellers would be subject to requirements based on their vaccination status.
