Greek Interior Ministry Examining Staggered Shifts for Civil Servants Returning to Work

ATHENS – The Interior ministry is examining the gradual return of civil servants to their jobs in two or three "staggered" shifts starting at different times, in order to avoid congestion in the workplace and on public transport, Interior Minister Takis Theodorikakos said on Monday in an interview with public broadcaster ERT1.

Theodorikakos added that the ministry is waiting for the final decisions on the opening of schools, because these will also affect decisions on special-purpose permits, which are given to parents who work in the public sector and have children up to 15 years old.

The minister reiterated that "the return to normalcy will be gradual. It will not be a return to how we lived before coronavirus came into our lives. A great deal of care is required. We must not underestimate the dangers. We must religiously adhere to what the experts recommend."



ATHENS - Greece's New Democracy government, saying it won't fall into a trap, is trying to keep calm as a furious Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, incensed by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' address to the US Congress has turned up the heat again.
