Government spokesperson Stelios Petsas announced additional coronavirus measures from 10/7/2020.
Mr. Petsas said, “Coronavirus has not gone away – it is still with us.”
The Government spokesperson then announced the additional measures which, he said, were aimed mainly at neighbouring Balkan countries.
1. Those entering the country for non-essential reasons from 06:00 on Tuesday 14 July at the border crossing at Promahonas must display a negative COVID test (PCR) conducted in the 72 hours prior to arrival and entry into Greece.
2. The Passenger Locator Form (PLF) remains in effect and must be completed. The form must now be completed at least 24 hours prior to arrival instead of 48 hours.
3. The number of random tests under health protocols will increase. To this end dozens of inspection teams from National Transparency Authority, the General Secretariat for Trade & Consumer Protection and the Hellenic Police will conduct over 300 tests nationwide by Sunday.
