Four new coronavirus cases confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Kef fire risk 23/10/21: Low

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1518
1 USD = € 0.8343

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.

Looks like work on the Bailey bridge across the Vohinas in Poros has been completed, although no traffic is allowed across as some of the materials need to dry and cure. Opening at 08:00 on Monday, 01 November.
