Strict Implementation of COVID-19 Measures on Labour Day and over the Weekend in Greece

ATHENS – The protection and restriction measures on Friday (Labour Day) and over the weekend against the spread of the coronavirus are the same to those applied during the Easter holidays" said Greek police sources to Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Friday.

Approximately 3,000 police officers are in the streets to hold checks and prevent congestion with the fines being the same.

Police officers will be at all toll posts on motorways carrying out strict checks to all the vehicles. In parallel, police officers will patrol the roads and make recommendations in case of gatherings.

The target is that there will be no gatherings in people's houses and the prevention of people leaving their residence, or gathering in open spaces, around churches, at bus stations and markets.

Drones and helicopters will be used, mostly in Athens and in the big cities, for the most effective implementation of the measures and to better direct action by police forces.

Regarding rallies on Labour day, police will make recommendations to the participating people to keep the safety distance.
