Argolida Curfew

Argolida in the Peloponnese and Evrytania in central Greece have become the latest regional units to have restrictions imposed on them by the civil protection authorities.  This mini-lockdown will go into effect from 06:00 on Friday 10th September and will be reviewed on 24th September depending on the course of coronavirus cases.  All movement in these regional units will be banned between 01:00 and 06:00 except for medical emergencies and work.  Music will be banned at clubs, bars and cafes to prevent overcrowding.  Parties and other gatherings of more than 20 people are also forbidden, both in private and public setting, with fines for violating this restriction ranging from 50,000 to 200,000 euros.  Existing restrictions imposed on the regional units of Achaea, Messinia and Iraklion remain in place. 

From Monday 13th September, new emergency measures designed to protect public health and contain the spread of Covid-19 will go into effect throughout Greece.  People that are unvaccinated (whether employees in the public or private sector, school pupils, students, any persons over 12 that want to travel by plane, train, intercity bus or ship, or visit any indoor area where people gather) must be able to present a certificate of a negative test for Covid-19 taken within the required time limit.  The cost of taking the test, which has been capped by law, will be borne by the individual as public facilities will only be able to test people that are either vaccinated against the virus or have symptoms, with an ID check.  These new measures will apply until 31st March 2022.
