Greece: Attica in strict lockdown for another week

The strict lockdown, in Athens and the surrounding Attica region, will remain in place until Monday, March 8, at 6 am.

Attica is currently in “dark red” (very high-risk) status on the country’s color-coded risk-assessment map, following a continuous rise in coronavirus cases. The region has been in a strict lockdown since February 11.

Residents in “dark red” areas are obliged to follow strict lockdown measures that include an evening/night curfew from 6 pm to 5 am (only on weekends for Attica) while all schools, retail stores, and hairdressers are closed.

Other areas in Greece that are currently in “dark red” (very high-risk) status and under strict lockdown include the island of Kalymnos, the Municipality of Kordelio-Evosmos (Thessaloniki regional unit), the regional unit of Achaia (northwestern Peloponnese), the regional unit of Arcadia (central Peloponnese) and the regional unit of Evia (not Skyros island).
