Greek Gov’t Publishes Health Protocols for Hotels in Government Gazette

ATHENS – The detailed health protocols to hotels and other tourist residences in Greece made public a week ago have been published in the Government Gazette, making them formally actionable.

Facilities are expected to adapt their practices to the coronavirus-related restrictions that include visitor and staff protection and responsibilities, and details on how to provide services safely

Year-round hotels are allowed to reopen on Monday, June 1, while seasonal hotels will reopen on June 15 to foreign visitors.

The protocols, a joint decision by the Ministries of Finance, Health and Tourism, call for the use of a certification sticker with the logo "Health First", which tourist facilities are obliged to put up this year at visible parts of the reception area.

For non-hotel facilities such as campsites and inns, the sticker will be provided by the Ministry of Tourist following an online application by the owners.
