Greece Sets Face Mask Rule to Contain Covid-19 Spread

Greek health authorities are urging the country’s residents to wear a mask at all times particularly in public spaces where contact with others is inevitable in efforts to keep the spread of Covid-19 in check.

The national health committee has recommended the mandatory use of masks in public transport and crowded public spaces such as hospitals, medical centers, shops, and hair salons, among others.

Masks should be used in all crowded spaces or in areas with high public circulation:

– On mass transport,
– in taxis,
– in hospitals and medical centers,
– at supermarkets and pharmacies,
– if you are caring or visiting a high-risk person.

How to Use a Mask

– Always wash your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer before putting on your mask,
– make sure to cover mouth and nose and that there are no open spaces between face and mask,
– do not touch the mask while using; if you do, wash your hands,
– you should replace used or damp masks,
– remove masks from behind and discard in a closed bin; wash hands after.
