Mandatory mask-wearing in planes, public indoor areas to end June 1 in Greece


The mandate to wear face masks in all indoor and outdoor public spaces is lifted from June 1 through September 15, with some exceptions, Greek Health Minister Thanos Plevris announced on Wednesday.

Face masks are also no longer required on airplanes and on transportation where seats are numbered, such as intercity trains and the country’s long-distance KTEL coaches.

However, face masks will still be required in all means of public transport (buses, trolleys, metro, tram and suburban railway trains), and in hospitals, health clinics and care facilities for the elderly.

The scientific committee advising the government on the course of the pandemic is set to meet next week to decide whether measures for schools and ships will also be altered.
