Night time curfew extended until October, 5, tourists may be exempted

The night-time curfew between 12:00am and 5:00am in the Northern Cyprus will remain in place until October, 5, 2021.

The announcement was made following a meeting of the TRNC Council of Ministers on Tuesday.

According to report, there might be some changes next week as it has been suggested that tourists might be exempted from the night-time curfew.

Also, Minister of Tourism and Environment , Fikri Ataoğlu, told Kibris Postasi that due to the daily decrease in the number of coronavirus cases, some changes regarding the ban were on the agenda. 

There were two different alternatives on the table, he said.

Ataoğlu said that he had recommended that the night-time curfew be lifted, but businesses should be closed by midnight. This would be similar to the practice in Turkey, he added.

The second alternative on the table is to keep the curfew in place but exempt tourists.

Ataoğlu noted that in the second alternative, it is planned that TRNC citizens, those with work permits and students continue to observe the curfew.

The suggestions were however refuted by the Minister of Health that doubly vaccinated people will be exempt from the curfew. “No such issue was discussed”, he said.

The government believes that the night-time curfew prevents the spread of the virus, particularly in bars and clubs.
