Cyprus enters on Friday a new phase of easing of COVID restrictions and the decree by the Health Ministry is already published in the Government`s Gazette.
Citizens are allowed to be outside until 3 in the morning if they are attending a wedding celebration but need to show proof, ie the invitation.
Lottery shops are allowed to operate with tables and chairs inside but attendees need to present a SafePass.
Moreover, events are allowed at amusement parks and playgrounds with a SafePass. This measure was set to come into effect June 16 but it was decided to move the date earlier.
In the decree it is pointed out that relaxations are made possible as the epidemiological figures in Cyprus allow to do so and because 54.1% of the population was vaccinated with the 1st dose and 31.9% concluded the vaccination scheme and because from May 28 until June 1 the number of cases is 208 and the hospitalizations are between 65-85 daily.
The Ministry also says that the number of deaths during the above period is 3 and the positivity rate stands close to 0.2%.
