Greece Steadily Emerges From Lockdown Measures
Greece has already begun loosening its strict lockdown measures, and as of Friday May 14, 2021, the entire country will begin to move more freely!

This means that the SMS system for leaving home will end, night curfew will begin at 12.30 am (instead of 11 pm), while domestic travel restrictions will be lifted as part of Greece’s phased returned to normality after months of strict lockdown measures

Also, the click-and-collect and click-in-shop systems will cease as retail trade gets closer to normal with health protocols in place stipulating one customer per 25 square meters.

What’s more, as of Friday, May 14th, the Greek version of the “green certificate” regarding travel to the islands (with the exception of Lefkada and Evia) comes into force, either by boat or by air. 

Restaurants will remain without music throughout May. Nursery schools will open on May 17, outdoor summer cinemas on May 21st, and outdoor cultural spaces on May 28th. As of June, weddings and baptisms will take place outdoors with a maximum of 100 people.

“We are leaving the lockdowns behind us,” stressed the deputy minister to the prime minister, Akis Skertsos.
