June 1 Target Date Whether Masks Off Indoors in Greece

ATHENS – With most health measures already eased to lure tourists and Greece returning to near-normal life during the COVID-19 pandemic, a decision whether to end a mandate on masks indoors will be made June 1.

Health Minister Thanos Plevris told SKAI radio that’s the date as the government’s advisory panel of doctors and scientists is reviewing epidemiological data to determine what would be safe.

He also said that the New Democracy government would not review its policy on unvaccinated healthcare workers that have been suspended from work until the end of the year.

They lost their pay because they refused to be vaccinated although the government now has essentially allowed anti-vaxxers to mingle with the vaccinated in indoor spaces and masks can’t be worn while dining or drinking.
