Ending The Blues: Concerts, Casinos Will Reopen in Greece

ATHENS — It’s been a long time coming and restrictions remain in place but Greek musicians will finally get a chance to work again when concerts – along with casinos and other activities still closed during the COVID-19 lockdown will resume on June 29.

But health protocols allegedly requiring social distancing – widely ignored or violated in other sectors, such as beach bars and taverns and restaurants crowded with people – will limit how many people can attend concerts and how far apart they must be seated.

That will still cut deep into possible revenues and has already seen many musicians left without work even with the return of concerts with the arts largely left out of plans to restart Greece as the lockdown has gradually been eased.

Also starting again, said the Development Ministry are designed economic activities that also include summer camps, cinema and theatre canteens, conferences and trade fairs,  cultural associations, movie theatres, and cable cars.
