A total of 44 free rapid test sites mobile units for coronavirus will operate nationwide on Saturday, the health ministry announced, for eligible groups.

Free rapid testing for the general population has been scrapped, while unvaccinated employees must present a negative coronavirus test every 72 hours, carried out privately.

Eligible for a free rapid test at the mobile units are minors who do not currently have the option to be vaccinated against Covid-19 or whose parents/guardians do not consent to them being vaccinated as well as everyone who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, on presentation of a medical certificate.

Pregnant women on presentation of a medical certificate from their gynaecologist confirming that vaccination is not recommended will also be allowed to use the free testing sites. However, starting August 8, pregnant women must present a relevant approval from the Cyprus Medical Association and the ministry of health.

Also eligible for free testing are people who have received the first dose of the vaccine and for the three weeks require a test to secure a SafePass, or are fully vaccinated against the virus with the presentation of their vaccination card. Exempt from paying for a rapid test are also people who have contracted and recovered from the virus within the last 180 days.

In addition to the mentioned certificates, people must also carry identification documents such as ID card, passport etc.
