Joint Ministerial Decision Bans Operation of Specific Businesses and Malls in Greece

ATHENS – Α new joint ministerial decision was published in the Government's Gazette on Monday that temporarily bans the operation of various private businesses and other places across the country where people gather in large numbers for the period until May 17, 2020 as a measure to avert the spread of Covid-19.

Based on the new JMD, access to all organised beaches, snow resorts, ski lifts, and flea markets is prohibited.

The operation of shops and businesses inside ports and airports is permitted but not those in outlets, shopping malls and discount villages, unless the store has its own independent entrance for customers.



ATHENS  - Floods that wiped out much of Greece’s agricultural heartland of Thessaly and blocked roads, keeping off trucks carrying goods have combined with inflation to make basic foods too expensive for many families.
