Greece holidays: FCO issues warning as strict local coronavirus measures ramp up

“No more than nine people can gather for any reason in public or private spaces.

“The maximum number of people allowed per table in dining facilities is four, unless your group consists only of close family members you regularly engage with, in which case, a group of up to six people is allowed.”

Face masks are also mandatory indoors and outdoors, with the exception of private indoor spaces such as hotel rooms.

On a wider scale, food and drink outlets must remain closed from midnight on August 23 until 7am in Thessaloniki; Halkidiki; Larissa; Corfu; Mykonos; Paros; Antiparos; Santorini; Zakynthos; Kos; Volos; Katerini.

This list of areas may be expanded.

The ban also applied to entertainment venues in Attica, Crete, East Macedonia and Thrace until August 31.

In a bid to further curb transmission of COVID-19 from tourists, the Greek authorities are encouraging travellers to wear face masks at all times for a week if they are arriving from countries with high coronavirus rates.

Holidaymakers must also wear their masks at all times while on the aeroplane and when in airports.

As of August 20, Greece has reported 250 new cases of the virus.
