Other decisions announced on Wednesday included extending quarantine arrangements for arrivals in the TRNC to 11.59pm on January 31; bringing forward the traditional mid-year February school holiday to January 4-January 15; the suspension of all private tuition courses, lessons and activities; a ban on gatherings at home of more than 10 people from December 31 to January 3 (tomorrow), both dates inclusive; and a ban on birthday parties, cinemas, theatres, engagement and wedding ceremonies, mass worships, exhibitions and the like.

Campaigners gain 3k signatures against huge İskele hotel build – ENVIRONMENT campaigners in İskele say they have collected 3,000 signatures for a petition calling for the withdrawal of plans to build a huge hotel by the beach.
