Can I walk my dog? – WITH the country back in lockdown, there has been confusion among Cyprus Today readers over whether or not walking a dog or exercising outdoors is allowed, and if permission is needed to visit a hospital or health centre to receive a Covid-19 vaccine.

Cyprus Today put the questions to the Police General Directorate. Here is what a spokesperson said:

Q: Can I walk my dog or exercise outdoors? A: No, anything outside “essential needs” that are met by pharmacies, markets, etc., is not permitted. If people want to take their dogs outside to meet their needs, they can be in front of their houses but they cannot leave their house for purposes that are not urgent or essential.
