  1. In the case of travellers (swallows) to Northern Cyprus from Cat. C surely it will be safer to isolate in their own villa as at least one can wander around the villa and garden. It will save your sanity and the 9000 Tl (husband and wife) cost of isolating in a hotel room, which hasn’t proved too successful up until now especially as cleaning the room has to be carried out by the hotel ‘Guests’.
    TRNC can forget holiday makers this year as it is easier to go to the South with no isolation than spend the normal 2 week holiday in isolation in the North.
