Hotels In Greece Will Have Basic Isolation Facilities and Treatment Areas

ATHENS — Hotels operating in Greece this summer will all have basic isolation facilities to allow for quarantine and assist in the treatment of COVID-19 cases, the country’s tourism minister said Tuesday.

Harry Theoharis told state television that preparations were also being finalized to set up a nationwide network of doctors available for hotel calls — so that cases requiring hospitalization would be better prioritized.

Greece will reopen regional airports to international flights on July 1, hoping to salvage some of the vacation season, as tourism remains a key source of income for the country’s economy.

The government has decided to relax testing rules for most incoming flights.


ATHENS - At the same time Greece's New Democracy government is trying to keep out more refugees and migrants, residency permits for second-generation non-European Union residents born in Greece will be extended from five to 10 years.
