Lockdown starts 6 a.m. Monday

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has announced a lockdown, starting at 6 a.m. Monday.

All citizens and residents must stay at home, or risk a 150-euro fine.

There are specific exemptions to the lockdown: going to work, visiting to doctor, shopping, including for medicines, leaving home to provide assistance to family members, especially the elderly and children, going out for exercise – solitary or in pairs – and walking the dog. Everyone must carry an ID or passport with them.

In a press conference later on Sunday, government officials clarified that, under the new restrictions, citizens planning to leave the house must inform authorities of the reason for their exodus. They have three options: either filling in a special form on the government website forma.gov.gr, sending an SMS to the number 13033 or explaining their reason in a signed personal declaration that can be written on a simple piece of paper.

Currently looks like the http://forma.gov.gr site is unavaliable

greekcitytimes.com has a write-up (in English) about the lockdown, although I don't think it adds anything substantial to what's above. This bit is quite nice, though:

Quote
State and Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis... also specified that as municipal dining facilities would be closed, food would be delivered at home or in the case of the homeless, at a homeless shelter. Particular care would be expended on the homeless, the drug addicts and the Roma, he said. Cities must ensure no homeless person is out of a shelter, and he also asked mayors to remember stray animals and ensure they are fed.

Be careful folks...these codes can be a bit confusing. I explained to my wife I was going to Lidl for a number 2 (supply store). Obviously I had to clarify it was my movement code......

I have my stray cat feeding permit, which enables me to carry on doing what I have been doing all winter and probably well into the summer.
Anyone currently feeding strays on the number 6 category can download the form, print, complete, scan and send to eyap.64@gmail.com
The permit should be returned by email very quickly.

Restrictions tightened for Easter

The government has announced a further tightening of measures restricting the movement of people by land, sea and air ahead of Easter as part of the effort to contain the spread of Covid-19. The measures will apply until April 27.

Hellenic Police set up checkpoints on Wednesday afternoon at highway toll stations throughout the country, on side roads and on regional roads to and from urban centers. At the same time, the coast guard is conducting checks at ports.

According to Hardalias, people at airports, ports, railway stations and intercity bus stations (KTEL) will only be allowed to travel if they are carrying income tax returns certifying that their permanent residence is their intended destination.

Greece Tightens Vise on Easter Restrictions During COVID-19

Trying to prevent an Easter exodus to villages and islands during a COVID-19 lockdown aimed at preventing the spread of the Coronavirus, Greece’s New Democracy is going to add more restrictions on movement.

There’s worry in the government that the advent of better spring weather combined with Easter – the traditional time for family gatherings – as well as cabin fever from people pent up for nearly three weeks will see mass flouting, said Kathimerini.

Much of Greece’s population annually flees the capital and cities to go to holiday homes at Easter but toll booths, ports and bus terminals are being used to check to ensure that only people with permanent residences can go to villages or islands.

Top Ten Things To Do When Lockdown is Lifted in Greece

An opinion poll  undertaken by the Star TV channel and released on Tuesday shows the top ten things that Greeks will rush to do when the coronavirus lockdown is finally lifted.

According to the survey by MRB, perhaps a bit surprisingly at the very top of the “to do” list is “visiting the hairdressers.” Fully thirty-five percent of the respondents said that this will be their top priority.

Taking a holiday in Greece comes as a second priority, followed by a visit to stores to buy clothing and shoes.
https://greece.greekreporter.com/2020/04/14/top-ten-things-to-do-when-lockdown-is-lifted-in-greece/


Pretty sure I've seen another survey and the top answer was "Go out and meet friends for coffee".

Restrictions on the operation of retail stores will gradually start to ease in mid-May, Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis said on Thursday, adding that the lifting of the measures will take place in reverse order to that in which they were introduced.

This means that the first businesses to be allowed to reopen will be the retail stores that were shuttered on March 18.
