As COVID-19 continues to impact the global and local community,  EY Cyprus is taking necessary measures to protect the health and wellbeing of our people, customers, associates, and wider community, while minimizing potential disruption.

More specifically, EY in Cyprus has already enacted special coronavirus protection protocols in line with the guidance and direction of the Cypriot Government and the World Health Organization (WHO). These include implementing guidelines deferring all non-essential international travel, incorporating all government requirements, and following applicable self-isolation and quarantine recommendations. All client events, conferences and seminars planned for this period have been postponed and deferred to a later stage.

As of Monday, 16th of March 2020, remote working measures have been taken with the majority of our people currently working from home. Our offices remain open, however, and we will continue to function at full capacity and offer our full range of services to support the needs of our clients, even while working remotely.

Commenting on the current situation, Stavros Pantzaris, Country Managing Partner of EY Cyprus, said: “As the COVID-19 situation evolves with new cases emerging every day, we intend to continue to work in a way that protects the health and wellbeing of our people, our clients and our wider community, while minimizing potential disruption. We have wide-ranging measures in place to do so and our teams are already utilizing our technological infrastructure to safely work remotely. We do hope for a quick recovery to those impacted by the virus.”

Furthermore, EY has explored and will continue to explore different ways to help companies deal with the consequences of this outbreak.  At EY Cyprus, we are constantly updating our clients on all measures taken by the local Government that directly affect their line of business. All related communication and guidance can be found here.  We invite you also to visit EY's dedicated COVID-19 section on our global website, where you can access more information on ways to help your business.

At EY, we are monitoring the situation closely, updating guidance as developments warrant and working to support all EY people and clients while helping them navigate through this crisis with minimum disruption.
