Starting on Saturday, the use of face masks will no longer be required in outdoor spaces in Greece.
Previously, according to coronavirus restrictions, Greeks were required to wear masks outdoors, even in areas without crowds.
The outdoor mask mandate ended after Greece’s special committee of epidemiologists and public health experts advised that it was no longer necessary.
Although no longer required, the use of face masks will still be recommended for those with underlying conditions and when one is in an outdoor location with dense crowds.
Currently, Greeks are still required to wear masks indoors. In supermarkets and on public transportation, people must wear either an N95 (or equivalent) mask or two surgical masks.
