He said that restaurants and entertainment centers are not allowed to open from 00.30 to 05.00 at level 2 ("being monitored") areas and from midnight to at 05.00 at level 3 ("being strongly monitored") areas. A maximum of 100 people is allowed to gather outdoors or indoors at level 1 (out of threat) areas, 50 at level 2 areas and 9 people at level 3 areas.

Some 638,879 targeted health checks have been carried out from July 1 to October 11, while the cases detected at the country's entry points total 1,738. In the same period, 421,006 inspections were carried out for compliance with measures, revealing 14,597 violations that brought along fines totaling 6,982,930 euros, he said.

Hardalias reiterated that the government will not take tougher restrictive measures and appealed to citizens to diligently observe measures already in effect.
