The Bi-Communal Health Committee, at its meeting on January 19, during which it evaluated the epidemiological situation in Cyprus, decided to leave the rules to be applied in intra-island crossings at Level 3, but brought some practices that vary according to the vaccine.
According to the rules that will come into effect on Monday, 7-day PCR/antigen test will be requested from the vaccinated people, 72-hour PCR test or 48-hour rapid test will be requested from the unvaccinated, but depending on the "validity periods" brought to the vaccines, those who do not have the 3rd dose of vaccine will be treated as non-vaccinated.
According to the resolutions announced by the UN Peacekeeping Force, people who have received Astra Zeneca, Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine 7 months after the second dose, 3 months after the second dose of Sinovac, Sinopharm, Sputnik or Johnson vaccine, those who have not taken the third dose. vaccines will be considered invalid.
People whose vaccines will be deemed invalid because they did not make the third dose in the required time, people who have never been vaccinated and people over 12 years old must submit a 72-hour PCR or a 48-hour rapid test at transitions.
The 5-11 age group, on the other hand, has to submit a 7-day PCR/antigen test like unvaccinated high school students after that.
