Cyprus to have a 2nd lockdown to help curb the rise in coronavirus infections.

Cyprus set for second coronavirus lockdown. Business to close and permission to go out needs approval. Authorities are also reintroducing a text messaging system that grants people permission to leave their home which is allowed only for work, shopping for essentials, visiting a doctor or exercising, with just two outside trips a day permitted. The current curfew from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. will remain in place.
