Stampoulidis: Delivery and Take Away Will Still Operate in Case of a Lockdown

February 9, 2021

ATHENS — Food "delivery" and "take away" services as well as open-air street markets, will continue to operate normally in the case of a "lockdown" in Attica, the general secretary of Trade and Consumer Protection Panagiotis Stampoulidis said in an interview with THEMA 104.6 on Tuesday.

He noted that supermarkets, electronic goods stores and, with certain restrictions, opticians/hearing aid stores will operate as they did in March.

These are standardised decisions, Stampoulidis stressed, adding that, although it is difficult to maintain balance, the economy must be preserved alongside public health.

He also stressed that it is important at this stage to protect health and to proceed with vaccinations.
