LESBOS, Greece — A set of stricter coronavirus restrictions will go into effect in the region of Lesvos at 06:00 on Wednesday, as announced after a special meeting held at the Civil Protection Secretariat on Tuesday.

The measures, introduced after 23 new coronavirus infections were registered on the island on Tuesday, will remain in effect until Monday, January 18.

Besides an overnight curfew between the hours of 18:00 and 05:00, travelling beyond the Lesvos region is prohibited over the next 6 days. The retail sector will stay shut and so will churches.
