Joy in The Time of Coronavirus: Greece Divided Over Carnival Ban

Following Athens’ further clarification that those who intend to disobey the ruling will face imprisonment of up to two years, one local authority after the other has declared that they will indeed be canceling all official events related to this year’s Carnival season.

However, this decision has sparked a widespread reaction, primarily from business owners who have been anticipating the much-needed revenue typically earned this weekend for months, as Carnival weekend is among Greece’s most festive times of the year.

For this reason, events organized by business owners, cafes, restaurants and clubs are believed to be going ahead as normal, with the understanding that all attendees accept full responsibility for their health as a result of their participation in the events.
