Limassol Marina is excited to announce that it will be open to the public once again from 21 May 2020! After an undoubtedly challenging two-month period of closure as a result of COVID-19 legislation, we look forward to welcoming visitors, property owners and yachting customers back to the Marina, and anticipate a wonderful summer season ahead with the reopening of all your favourite stores
At Limassol Marina, the safety and wellbeing of all guests, shoppers, diners, retailers and employees remain our top priority. With this in mind, the Marina has put in place stringent hygiene measures to ensure an enjoyable experience for all visitors. These precautionary steps will be implemented as follows:
Shops and Retail Stores
• Customers must disinfect their hands before entering and departing a store.
• The use of a mask is mandatory for employees and recommended for customers.
• The number of people entering the store must be strictly monitored (one person per 8 square meters).
• Product testing need to be avoided. If this is not possible, customers must wash their hands with soap and water or antiseptic prior to testing the product.
According to Ministry of Health regulations, the number of people who can enter a store will be listed outside each store.
• Small stores can only allow one customer at a time to enter (a sign outside the store will need to state this).
• In large stores, the maximum number of customers who can enter will be displayed at the entrance. Distances between employees as well as between employees and customers must be maintained.
• If distances cannot be maintained, the Ministry recommends the use of a mask.
Shopkeepers must ensure that the store is kept clean.
On the issue of shop ventilation at regular intervals:
• The use of air conditioners should be avoided.
• Where necessary, the air conditioning system will be used to introduce fresh air into the space, not recycle the air.
These changes are intended to safeguard public health.
Restaurants and Cafes
• The Ministry has asked all food providing services to provide informational notices to their staff on the possible symptoms of coronavirus and to ask those who show symptoms to stay at home and seek medical advice.
• While it is obligatory that the temperature of staff is checked, the Ministry has stated that checking the temperature of customers is optional.
• According to the announcement, all cafes, restaurants and bars should place announcements at entrances informing customers of simple protection measures, such as social distancing, good hand washing and disinfection.
• The new rules state that in outdoor settings, customers must be two square metres apart, and three square metres apart indoors. The maximum number of people per table is 10.
• Employees serving the public are instructed to limit conversation with customers as much as possible, while the use of masks and gloves by all staff is mandatory.
• To limit any dangers of the virus spreading through menus, the Ministry recommended that companies have a single-use price menu, or menus placed in visible positions that won’t need to be collected, or even to provide menus electronically. Either way, menus should be disinfected after every use.
• Further, all food and beverage service companies must use single use tablecloths and promote contactless transactions to limit the use of cash.
• All toilets should be equipped with liquid soap, disposable hand towels and antiseptic alcohol solution. All floor surfaces, counters, cash registers, toilets must be kept clean and disinfected regularly during the day.
