Greece makes compulsory wearing face masks on ferry decks

Tourists travelling by ferries in Greece will have to wear face masks even when they are sitting on the open-air decks, government spokesman Stelios Petsas announced on Monday, cited by Ekathimerini. The new measure will apply from 3 to 18 August. Greece has seen a steady rise in novel coronavirus infections during the last week.

The government has also decided to extend to 15 August a measure by which foreign seasonal workers who leave Greece by that date will not be able to return until further notice.

Both measures were decided during a video conference of PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis with the head of the government advisory commitee Sotiris Tsiodras, Health Minister Vassils Kikilias, and Deputy Minister for Civil Protection and Crisis Management Nikos Hardalias on Monday morning.
