Twice-weekly Covid-19 tests ordered for non-vaccinated employees in Greece’s tourism

Greek civil protection authorities on Thursday announced yet another measure for employees in the country’s tourism and food and beverage sectors
that remain without a Covid-19 vaccination, saying the latter will now be obliged to provide a negative test result twice weekly.

According to relevant Deputy Minister Nikos Hardalias, at least one self-test and one rapid test will be required, and obviously with a negative result
for continued employment without the need for quarantine.

Asked about this month’s mini “lockdown” on the popular holiday island of Mykonos, Hardalias referred to a slight drop in the infection rate,
while adding that the measure was beneficial.
