If EU tourists have a negative PCR test for covid-19 or are fully vaccinated, Greece plans to cancel the week-long quarantine measures for EU tourists.
According to the “Daily Shimbun” report on Thursday, the government’s plan has not yet been approved by epidemiologists on Friday.
Passengers must be fully vaccinated or PCR tests must show negative, and some passengers will be randomly checked.
In the country, tourists must comply with epidemiological measures, including mandatory wearing of masks outdoors.
Athens initially planned to announce May 14 as the beginning of the tourist season, and then cancel the quarantine obligation.
For travelers from Israel, the United States, the United Kingdom, Serbia, Israel and the United Arab Emirates, the quarantine obligation will also be lifted.
Based on the covida-19 content in wastewater samples, Greek virologists believe that the number of coronavirus cases will continue to decline in the coming weeks.
The Greek authorities have recorded 3,089 new cases in the past 24 hours, nearly a thousand fewer than the previous day.
