Coronavirus phase two of free PCR tests for workers starts Saturday
Phase two of free PCR tests for workers permitted to travel to and from Paphos and Limassol district will start on Saturday at 2 pm and continue till November 27, the health ministry has announced.
Travel between the districts is permitted on presentation of a negative PCR test no older than seven days and confirmation from employers.
The first phase of testing was marred by huge lines and prompted Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou to issue a personal apology for the inconvenience saying authorities had not estimated the large number of people who would be testing.
Phase one ended on Friday evening, with the Cyprus News Agency reporting that tests had ran out in Limassol, with members of the public forced to visit more than one testing centre in search for a test.
