TRNC declares 3-day public holiday to celebrate Eid-al Fitr

The three days Ramadan Bayram or Eid-al Fitr Festival begins on Sunday morning after morning prayers following the holy month of Ramadan.

All public offices, for the exception of essential services, will be closed until Wednesday.
The last day for fasting is tomorrow.

Physical distancing will be maintained during Sunday morning prayers and worshippers will be redirected outdoors to courtyards if mosques become overcrowded.

Worshippers will be required to wear masks when entering the mosques and ablutions will only be allowed to be performed at home.

The traditional Bayram greetings held at the presidential palace and the Cyprus Turkish Security Forces have been cancelled this year as part of Covid-19 measures.

Police and the municipalities are also taking precautionary measures on the roads and streets so that the public can celebrate the holiday comfortably.

The public will be allowed to visit friends and families, but are urged to maintain social and physical distancing, to avoid close contact and adhere to other measures.

The central State prison will be open for visits during the three day Ramadan Bayram holiday but visitors will have to wear masks and gloves during visitation hours.

Each inmate will be allowed one visit by a maximum of two persons.

Their temperatures will also be recorded upon entry into the prison grounds.

The weather will be partly cloudy with some showers expected on Sunday.

Temperatures will edge down for the second and third day of the Bayram holiday.
