|2020 coronavirus pandemic in Akrotiri and Dhekelia|
|Location||Akrotiri and Dhekelia|
|Arrival date||15 March 2020|
(2 weeks and 4 days)
On 13 March, Cyprus implemented a 14-day self-isolation rule for all people travelling from the United Kingdom. This measure includes arrivals from the United Kingdom travelling to the Sovereign Bases of Akrotiri and Dhekelia. Several people were self-isolating within the bases and being tested. All sporting activities, visits, and non-essential exercises within the bases were cancelled, in an effort to reduce the number of outside visitors.
On 15 March, the first two cases in Akrotiri and Dhekelia were confirmed, both members of the UK Armed Forces permanently based at RAF Akrotiri. They arrived at Paphos Airport on 13 March. They self-isolated and were tested positive after developing mild symptoms. Immediately after, the BFC Joint Services Health Unit started contact tracing.
