Special Pandemic Restrictions in Kalymnos Lifted

ATHENS — The special Covid-19 restrictive measures on the island of Kalymnos were lifted as of Monday, May 24.

According to an announcement by the General Secretariat for Civil Protection, taking into account the improved epidemiological picture on the island of Kalymnos, it was decided to lift the special restrictive measures imposed on the island on May 5 in order to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus.

"Kalymnos experienced a difficult situation. As of Monday, it gradually returns to normalcy, after a great effort made by its inhabitants all this time – we thank them for their patience, as we thank all the local bodies for their cooperation and commitment to the faithful observance of measures. I appeal once again to everyone – from Monday let us be twice as careful and avoid any gatherings that may cause trouble on the island again. Let us protect the tourist season that is beginning, the local economy, but above all our health and that of our fellow human beings," Deputy Minister of Civil Protection and Crisis Management, Nikos Hardalias, said.
