Ten new coronavirus cases on Kefalonia yesterday, as announced by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.14
1 USD = € 0.8484

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.


Ten day weather forecast for Kefalonia:
This is an overall forecast, due to the mountainous terrain the weather can be very localised.

Booster website opens to all on Friday

All adults who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 for at least 5.5 months may book their appointment for a booster shot on the government’s vaccine website from Friday, a Health Ministry official announced on Monday.

People vaccinated with the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine can take a booster shot two months after their first vaccine and one month later if they are immunocompromised.
