Passengers flying to Greece no longer need to wear a mask as the country relaxes its mandatory mask wearing.
From June 1, Greece will no longer require travellers to wear masks on planes, following a proposal from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) that face masks should no longer be required in airports or on flights.
Also, wearing a face mask is no longer required in restaurants, bars, and cafés, although they are still required in hospitals, care institutions, and on public transportation.
“Mandatory mask-wearing continues in hospitals, nursing homes, and urban transportation such as buses, metro, and tram,” stated the Health Minister Thanos Plevris of the county.
“From June 1, it is only obligatory to wear a mask on public transportation and in hospitals and care institutions for the elderly,” according to the UK Foreign Office website, which has been modified to reflect the changes.
There is no legal necessity to wear a mask in any other area” – it also stated.
Visitors to Greece, regardless of vaccination status, are not required to undergo any Covid tests, provide proof of vaccination, or show proof of recovery in order to enter.
