Greece changes rules for tourists who contract COVID


Tourists who are infected with COVID-19 while on holiday in Greece will no longer be required to quarantine, according to a government announcement. 

 

 

Currently, those who have COVID are to remain in quarantine for five days, but this will no longer apply to travellers, SchengenVisaInfo.com reported.

 

COVID positive travellers will also be able to access ferries, planes, and other forms of transport, but must wear an FFP2 or a KN95 face mask the entire time.

 

Greece lifted all of its COVID-related entry restrictions earlier in May, allowing all travellers, regardless of their country of origin, restriction-free entry.

 

The Greek Minister of Tourism, Vasilis Kikilias, said that the number of holidaymakers deciding to visit Greece during the summer season keeps on increasing each day.

 

According to a World Travel Market survey, six of the top ten European destinations that registered the highest increase compared to 2019 are in Greece.
