Indoor Masking Requirements
Wearing a face mask covering nose and mouth indoors is no longer required in indoor public places, including church. However vulnerable people are recommended to continue doing so. It is also still recommended to use hand gel, entering and leaving the church.
A Listening Ear
If you are a Cyprus resident and would like an opportunity to share where you are; how you are in this season, a trained Spiritual Director is available to listen confidentially. Information here.
