Greece Announces Restrictions on Holiday Gatherings

The Greek government on Monday announced lockdown rules for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as well as for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Gatherings at homes will be limited to a maximum of nine people from two families, government spokesman Stelios Petsas said.
He added that the 10 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew will also apply.
“The government made protection of public health and human life the top priority from the first moment. On this basis, it has decided to extend the restrictions imposed in the framework of the lockdown until January 7, so that all the citizens together and with faith in our strength, we can get through these different holidays with safety,” he said.
Petsas said that the suspension for retail stores will continue, barring curbside service, bookshops and the reopening of beauty salons and vehicle safety testing centres (KTEO).
Citizens will still be required to send an SMS to 13033 or use alternatives to justify their movements when visiting these latter establishments and services, he stressed.
The spokesperson also announced the government’s decision to allow the opening of nail bars, in light of evidence that there was extensive ‘black labour’ with visits to customer’s homes in this sector.
Given this, he said, it was preferable that they operate openly in a more controlled environment, abiding by health safety measures and protocols.
