Mitsotakis Sounds Alarm Over Crowded Entertainment Places

ATHENS — A meeting under Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis was held on Monday with focus on an operational plan drawn up by the relevant ministries for enforcing compliance with the measures against Covid-19.

According to information, during the meeting they stressed that there must be no relaxation in terms of inspections, while at the same time there was a discussion on the penalties that will apply after the measures for recreational activities – which have already been announced – come into effect on July 15.

"We must focus our attention on the question of entertainment, especially in crowded places that can become sources of outbreaks," the prime minister noted. The operational plan for inspections and the penalties for those that break the rules will be presented next week.
