Sumary of Greece announces new restrictions for those not vaccinated:
- Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias said the new measures weren’t punitive, but “what we must do as a responsible state.
- ” “It is our obligation toward all those who lost the battle” before vaccines became available, Kikilias said.
- 13 until March 31. Under the new regulations, all private and public sector workers without a certificate proving vaccination or recent recovery from COVID-19 will have to undergo one rapid test per week, Kililias said.
- The tests will be conducted at private facilities, with the 10-euro cost to be paid by the tested individuals.
- Stressing that more than 90% of the COVID-19 patients in Greece’s intensive care units are unvaccinated, Kililias said indoor entertainment venues, restaurants, bars and cafes will only be accessible to vaccinated or recently recovered customers, with verification checks conducted at entrances through an app that scans COVID-19 certificates.
- Unvaccinated people will be able to enter indoor movies, theaters, museums, archaeological sites and gyms only with proof of a negative rapid test conducted up to 48 hours earlier.
