Government spokesman Kyriakos Kousios said on Monday that a member of the presidential guard has been infected with the coronavirus.
Speaking on private television station Alpha, Kousios confirmed that one of the officers serving in the presidential guard has contracted the virus but has not displayed any serious symptoms.
The spokesman said the guard had contracted the virus during a visit to Limassol.
Kousios said all measures were put in place and staff were tested with negative results. He said the president and himself were also tested.
It is understood that the officer was confirmed on Friday.
The presidential guard works on a shift system so that members avoid coming into contact with everyone.
