Restaurants, bars and cafes reopen in Greece

Restaurants, cafes, and bars in Greece have reopened today after a lockdown was imposed in November with restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Businesses are only allowed to serve customers in the open, with distanced tables and up to six patrons per table to limit the number of close contacts. Self-testing for Covid-19 is compulsory for workers who also have to wear a mask. Businesses are not allowed to play music, to prevent people from getting too close together to be heard, and have to close by 10.45 p.m.Those who want to go to places will receive a code by sending a text message to a specified number.

At the same time, the curfew was shortened by one hour, until 23:00.
