TRNC extends some Covid-19 measures until January 10

The Higher Committee for Infectious Diseases has re-evaluated the measures that it had been implementing in the past week. 

While some of the measures have been extended until January 10 the night-time curfew that was being implemented on New Year’s has been removed. 

According to the latest decisions cafes, restaurants, patisseries, coffee shops, bet offices, hairdressers, beauticians, gyms, barber shops and similar venues will be allowed to operate until 10 pm while restaurants will only be allowed to remain open for delivery services after that time. 

Taverns, massage salons, bars, clubs and similar entertainment venues will remain closed until January 10. 

The mandatory quarantine for those using the crossings has also been extended. 

The committee also announced that those working for the UN, EU, British Sovereign Bases, the UN buffer zone, Missing Persons Committee and UNFICYP will have to present a negative PCR test that has been carried out within the last 72 hours in order to be exempt from quarantine. 

The same measures are valid for those who live in the mixed village of Pile.

Those who are receiving treatment in the south of the island will also be able to cross without having to quarantine on their return on the condition that they provide a negative PCR test carried out in the last 72 hours. 

Those who are working or studying in the south will continue to be subjected to quarantine until January 10. 

In line with the Green Line Regulation, the committee is allowing traders who are carrying out trade to continue to do so without being subjected to quarantine measures. 

The Committee has also announced that ambulances that use the Yeşilırmak border crossing for transit purposes will not be subjected to quarantine measures while everyone else will be subject to quarantine. 

Those who reside in the village of Beyarmudu but carry out agricultural and farming activities in the base areas will be allowed to carry out day visits without being subjected to quarantine measures. 

The decision to limit gatherings at households to 10 people has been extended until January 10. 

In addition to extending the ban on all mass gatherings in open and closed areas until January 10, restrictions on funeral services also remain in place with only immediate family members allowed to attend funeral services. 

Team sports competitions will also continue without spectators.
