The programme of free rapid coronavirus tests continues and has expanded in the Paphos district, along with PCR testing of employees and others that are exempt from the ban on travel to and from Paphos.

Following the completion of the rapid tests in Polis Chrysochous, the next phase will be completed within 10 days in three areas in Paphos.

The programme is for all residents but priority is for those who are employed in areas of public service, front line professionals and then other residents.

Testing will be at outside Paphos town hall from 9am to 5pm, on Eleftheriou Venizelou Avenue (in front of the Citizen Service Centre) from 9am to 5pm, and a mobile unit will be set up in Peyia at the square of Vrisi ton Pegeiotisssa, from 9am – 2pm.

Free testing will also get underway in Geroskipou from Thursday (tomorrow), according to the local mayor, Michalis Pavlides.

“Testing will be at the sculpture park as we have a large parking area there and it depends how many people turn up as to how many days the testing will last,” he informed the Cyprus Mail.

In addition, he noted that some members of the municipality staff are currently self-isolating for 14 days after one of them came into contact with a positive case, even though his test came back as negative.

Marinos Lambrou, the mayor of Peyia said that the health ministry in cooperation with the company Mediwell Home Healthcare Services will offer completely free antigen rapid test for the entire population of Peyia, according to CNA.

Lambrou called on Peyia residents to give up five minutes of their time to conduct the test.

During two days of testing Polis Chrysochous, 316 tests were performed and only one positive case was detected, said the mayor, Giotis Papachristofi.

In Paphos of the 580 antigen rapid tests conducted, eight positive cases emerged on Tuesday.

In the meantime, the Ministry of Health informed that the programme of PCR testing for workers wishing to travel continues, with the reinforcement and the addition of new sampling points in the two districts.

As well as a mobile unit in Geroskipou, another is at the parking area of the “Stelios Kyriakidis” Stadium (former Paphiakos) and got underway yesterday.

The testing will continue on Thursday and Friday, November 18-20, from 8am until 6pm.

The health ministry also extended the need for workers travelling between, to or from the two districts to present negative PCR certificate not less than 7 days old, to Thursday at 5am.
