Greece Makes Mask-Wearing Compulsory in Additional Indoor Places

Greek authorities announced on Tuesday that mask-wearing will be made compulsory in more indoor public spaces to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The government made the decision after a small flare-up of infections in the second half of this month, the Civil Protection Ministry said.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has warned Greek citizens that the danger of COVID-19 is not over yet.

“We dealt with the first wave of the pandemic, but the danger still looms large,” he said in a tweet on Monday.

Masks are compulsory beginning on Wednesday in the following:

  • Grocery stores
  • Retail stores
  • Hairdressers, beauty salons
  • Public transport
  • Taxis
  • Supermarkets
  • Public Utility offices
  • Banks
  • Medical practices
  • Elevators

Greece has managed to contain the spread of infections to 4,227 confirmed cases and 202 deaths after imposing an early lockdown.

At the current time, a total of nine patients in Greece, with an average age of 58, remain intubated in ICUs across the country.
