Cyprus.- The Council of Ministers of the Republic of Cyprus has allowed Hong-Kong based Melco Resorts and Entertainment Ltd to reopen its venues on the island from May 17 at 30 per cent capacity.

Melco’s casinos have been closed since since December due to Covid-19 countermeasures.

According to the company, the casinos could be allowed to increase their capacity to 50 per cent from June 1.

Those who want to enter the casinos will need to present a certificate to prove they had a negative Covid-19 test carried out within the last 72 hours or at least one Covid-29 vaccine dose at least three weeks prior.
