Cyprus is to make wearing face masks mandatory indoors just a month after ditching the rule.

And the Foreign Office is warning tourists they could by hit with a €300 fine if they fail to wear one.

Cyprus Health Minister Michalis Hadjipantela said on Wednesday that masks indoors will be mandatory from Friday, 8 July.

The reintroduction is due to a spike in COVID cases in Cyprus.

The UK Foreign Office updated its travel advice for Cyprus to say: “As of 8 July 2022, the use of a face mask is compulsory in all indoor venues and on all public transport for everyone aged 12 and above.

“Failure to comply with restrictions may result in a €300 fine.”
