Georgiadis: Plans for Organising Seating in Restaurants Are Now Ready

ATHENS – The Ministry of Development and Investments has finished its planning for the organization of seating in restaurants and the minimum distances that must be observed, according to a post by Development and Investment Minister Adonis Georgiadis on Monday.

Specifically, the minister stated: "With Deputy Minister Nikos Papathanasis on Saturday, we completed the study on the organisation of space in restaurants, with the required distances. The goal is to preserve 80 pct of their previous capacity. Everything will be fine. I also thank our volunteers for their help."

In an interview with Antenna TV on Monday, the minister said: "In the coming days, the results from the first phase of the gradual lifting of the measures will be evaluated and depending on the recommendations of the experts we will see if we can lift the rest of the measures earlier than currently scheduled."
