Greece to Scrap Mask Mandate on June 1st

People in Greece will no longer be required to wear masks indoors starting June first, according to Thanos Plevris, the Greek minister of health.

However, masks will still be required in certain places, such as in hospitals, elder care homes, and on public transit.

Travelers on airplanes and on the country’s KTEL bus system will not be required to wear masks.

The new measure will run from June 1st until September 15th, when the possibility of requiring masks in indoor places will be reconsidered.

In late April, Greece announced that it would scrap COVID-19 vaccination and recovery certificates starting on May 1st as part of its plan to return to normalcy ahead of the summer tourist season.

At the time, Plevris also announced that restrictions on occupancy rates at places such as restaurants, shops, and sports venues would be lifted until August 31st when all the measures would be reviewed.
