Greece says no coronavirus tests, no quarantine for tourists this summer

Tourists will be allowed to enter Greece without taking a coronavirus test or remaining in quarantine when international flights restart on July 1, but health officials will conduct spot tests when required, Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis said on Wednesday.

Flights will initially only land in Athens’ International Airport when services resume on June 15 but will eventually extend to all the airports as of July 1, he said.

Well, it seems as though there's some confusion but I did see Haris Theoharis, Greek tourism minister, interviewed on ITV and he did say Brits need not apply. At least, he didn't think the UK's coronavirus record would be good enough by 01 July. Report and video clip of interview on itv.com/news.

And even if Brits are allowed to holiday in Greece in the near future, the "air bridges" allowing Brits to travel abroad and not quarantine on return to UK appears to be fantasy, according to the Daily Telegraph.
