Cyprus to scrap curfew from 10 June

From 1 June, indoor catering areas reopen and 20 people can get together in homes

From Saturday 29 May, the curfew in Cyprus will start one hour beyond midnight and will be abolished completely from 10 June, Cypriot Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou announced on his Facebook page following today’s government meeting.

Citing a marked improvement in epidemiological indicators across the island, Ioannou announced a series of further relaxations throughout the coming month.

From 29 May:

  • The night-time curfew will be in force from 1 am to 5 am until 10 June.

From 1 June:

  • A maximum of 20 persons can gather in homes, including permanent residents and minors.
  • The physical presence of persons indoors, such as places of worship, casinos, conference and trade fair venues, theatres, amphitheatres and other performing arts venues is set at 50 percent capacity of each venue.
  • Indoor areas of catering businesses, such as bars and restaurants, can reopen based on a health protocol.

From 10 June:

  • Curfew ends.
  • Nightclubs are reopening, on the basis of a health protocol.
  • The limit of 50 percent physical presence of employees in public or private workplaces is lifted. 

Details of the decisions regarding the operation of sports venues will be announced by the Cyprus Sports Organisation.

51 percent of Cypriots vaccinated with one dose 

The Health Minister said the Government is proceeding steadily with the relaxation of anti-pandemic measures according to its Recovery and Resilience Plan which aims to restart the economy and social activities. This has been made possible by “the faithful observance of the protection measures, the discipline in following the health protocols and the great response to the call for vaccination”, Ioannou added.

The latest data shows that 51 percent of Cypriots have been vaccinated with the first dose, while 25 percent of the population has received full vaccination protection, which puts the country among the leaders in vaccine rollout across the European Union. The minister hopes that vaccination coverage of 65 percent of the population with at least one dose can be achieved by the end of June.
