Re: Free testing in Cyprus for uk Tourists

It’s all rather confusing with the goal post continually moving different rules regulations for different accommodations as Covid rules the day, in accordance with outbreaks and localised spikes

Re: Cyprus expects 600,000 tourists by August

The island needs tourism to survive, some look at life in a totally different light and if they have funds will take a holiday to the med, others will wait until next year which would definitely be my option, nobody really understands this virus 🦠 we are told people move it, so we will all know the ...
