Greece lifts COVID restrictions for summer tourism season

Greece said on Wednesday that pandemic restrictions such as mask-wearing indoors and COVID certificates will be lifted throughout the summer tourism period and authorities will consider reinstating them in September.

Coronavirus infections in Greece have eased in recent weeks, with authorities recording 15,000 infections and 64 deaths on Tuesday. Out of a population of 11 million, some 72% are fully vaccinated.

Greece's vital summer tourism season typically begins after the Orthodox Easter, which this year falls on April 24.

In addition, from May 1 until August 31, capacity and operation of all spaces will return to 100%.

As for the lifting of the mask use obligation, the only exceptions to the measure will be on all means of public transport (buses, trains, ships – indoors – and airplanes), where it will be mandatory.

There will be no lifting of measures for Easter, while the strong recommendation for mask use in crowded outdoor areas will remain in place.
