Covid-19 and Fundamental Rights in the Republic of Cyprus

Evaluation of the Measures by the Government and Public Authorities

Centre for Fundamental Rights of University of Nicosia/Symfilios

The first Governmental reaction to the coronavirus was on 28th February with a set of measures consisting of:

        General cautions to the public to avoid crowded spaces and self-isolate;

        Announcements about possible future measures to be adopted if need be; and

        The closure of four checkpoints along the ceasefire line separating south (the Republic of Cyprus) from north (the Turkish occupied “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus”).  

 

The checkpoints had been opened by the Turkish army in 2003 as a measure to assist collaboration between the Greek and Turkish communities and had remained open for seventeen years until 28 February 2020.
