Covid restrictions in Greece in September
Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias announced measures concerning unvaccinated Greek citizens - they do not apply to tourists.
“We are talking about a pandemic of unvaccinated people,” emphasized the Minister of Health, Vassilis Kikilias, and emphasized: “More than 90% of patients in the intensive care unit are unvaccinated.”
Measures to be applied:
▪ 1 September suspension for hospital staff who have not been vaccinated and do not have a medical certificate as a justification. Mandatory vaccination also applies to private doctors and pharmacists, the Minister of Health explained, explaining that penalties and sanctions will be imposed for those who do not comply.
▪ From September 13, vaccinated workers in the public and private sector will have to do a quick test every week at a price of 10 €
▪ Mandatory two tests per week for unvaccinated teachers, from 13 September. Free tests will be given only to students. Unvaccinated teachers and professors, workers in tourism, catering, television, film, theater, music and dance production will be required to take two tests a week.
▪ Unvaccinated people will not be able to go to public facilities for a free Covid test before traveling
▪ In all other closed jobs, the employer has the legal right to know which of the employees has been vaccinated and which has not.
▪ Mask is mandatory in the open at places of large gatherings (concerts, festivals …)
The only thing that probably includes tourists is that from 13.9. for domestic flights, travel by city and intercity buses (KTEL), train and boat, and children aged 5 to 12 should have a negative self test (from a pharmacy).
