Gerapetritis: The opening of Schools in Greece Sends a Message of Optimism

ATHENS – State Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis, in an interview with Proto Thema radio on Monday, spoke about "a very organised, professional plan" in tourism and the market, along with good epidemiological data.

Regarding the opening of primary schools, he noted that "it is of very high symbolism for both today and for future generations," and said it was "very important" that children return to their natural environment, which is school. "Today is a very special, joyful and optimistic day," he stressed.

From Monday until June 15, "tests will be carried out on all travellers coming into Greece, whoever enters Greek territory now is tested and remains in quarantine for one night until we have the results."

From June 15 to June 30, with the opening of airports in Athens and Thessaloniki "sample tests will be carried out on passengers coming from a 'safe' airport (ie from an area without a large epidemiological load) while all others from unsafe backgrounds will be subjected to tests."
