Takeaway Orders Are Now Allowed, Thessaloniki Chamber Says

November 4, 2020

THESSALONIKI — The government has allowed the pickup of takeaway orders, Thessaloniki Chamber of Tradesmen said on Wednesday, following a change in the directive that shut down food, drink and entertainment venues to seated customers throughout the country on Tuesday to curb the coronavirus pandemic.

The chamber said it sent a letter of protest to Deputy Minister for Civil Protection & Crisis Management Nikos Hardalias urging him to allow customers to be able to pick up their orders from food outlets, instead of only allowing home delivery.

In its letter, the chamber said it had argued with the minister that if it is is safe to buy coffee, refreshments or cooked food from a supermarket, it should be safe to pick the same up from a store.

Thessaloniki and Serres in northern Greece were placed under lockdown for two weeks on Tuesday after a spike in infections.
