Seven-day quarantine for those coming from Turkey and South Cyprus

Seven-day quarantine for those coming from Turkey and South Cyprus

The Committee on Infectious Diseases has recommended that passengers from Turkey undergo a mandatory seven-day quarantine from August 1.

A committee set up by the TRNC Ministry of Health made a recommendation given the number of new cases arising from the arrival of passengers from Turkey since 1 July.
The recommendation was endorsed by Health Minister Ali Pilly, but it is not yet known how this will be implemented.
According to sources in the Ministry of Health, the main reason for this decision was that the arriving passengers were not self-isolated, as agreed.

Prime Minister Ersin Tatar said there is no discussion about the introduction of a seven-day quarantine period for those arriving from Turkey or South Cyprus.

Currently, only people arriving from Category C countries are required to have a negative PCR test 72-120 hours prior to arrival. They will undergo a second PCR test upon entering the country and will be quarantined in a quarantine center designated by the Ministry of Health for 14 days.

The Prime Minister noted that "since July 1, about 24,000 tests have been carried out on those who entered the country, only 23 of them were positive, and this number was within acceptable limits
