The regional units of Ioannina and Serres have been placed under lockdown as of Thursday morning due to a spike in coronavirus cases. They join two other Greek regions –Kastoria and Kozani– which were moved to level 4 (increased risk) last week.

Among the measures taken are the mandatory use of a mask both indoors and outdoors, an overnight curfew from 12:30 to 5:00 in the morning, a ban on movements outside the regional unit and a ban of all gatherings in public and private spaces.

In addition, the operation of the following is suspended:
