Holiday boost as Greece scraps more Covid rules ahead of summer

0 65

MORE Covid rules are being scrapped across Greece, in a welcome boost for Brits heading there this summer.

The country confirmed that face masks will no longer be mandatory on flights or in indoor public venues from next month.

The rule change, in place from June 1, follows the announcement from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) that dropped mandatory mask-wearing.

But rules for wearing masks vary after the mandatory requirement was lifted, with airlines told to encourage passengers to use masks on flights to or from destinations where wearing a mask on public transport is still required.

“Mandatory mask-wearing remains in hospitals, nursing homes and urban transport like buses, metro and tram,” Greece’s Health Minister Thanos Plevris said in a televised message.

He added that an experts committee will announce its decision for ferry passengers next week.

In early March, Greece lifted a requirement that masks be worn in restaurants, bars and night entertainment establishments.

Last month, Greece scrapped Passenger Locator Forms, making it easier for Brits to travel to the country.

And since May 1, Brits no longer needed to show proof of vaccination or negative Covid tests to enter Greece.

The UK government website states: “The Greek Government has confirmed that from May 1, travellers arriving from the UK, USA and European Union countries are exempt from the requirement to show a vaccine certificate, proof of a negative test, or a certificate of recovery from Covid to enter Greece.”

Greek officials have also stressed that the removal of the Covid rules will be in place until August 31.

The Covid situation in the country will then be re-evaluated – and any spikes in new cases could lead to them being reintroduced.

Greece reported 4,626 Covid cases yesterday, with 19 deaths.
