Greece launches “Enjoy your stay – Stay safe” campaign

Greece has launched an information campaign “Enjoy your stay – Stay safe”, urging tourists to be mindful of health rules during their holiday in the country.

The General Secretariat for Civil Protection issued nine directives for the necessary protection measures, given that from July 1, Greece will “open” to foreign travellers.

Greek authorities are hoping to salvage the season and limit some of the losses incurred by the tourism industry while maintaining the positive momentum achieved by the successful management of the first wave of the novel virus.

The messages will be located at all entry points (airports and ports) and will be available in three languages – English, French and German. Flyers will also be distributed to travellers.

The campaign is a joint effort between the National Organisation for Public Health (EODY), airport operator Fraport, Athens International Airport and the Civil Aviation Authority.

Although the pandemic is in decline in Greece, authorities expect a further increase in the number of imported cases which started with the gradual opening of the borders on June 1. Between June 1- June 25, Greece recorded 404 new covid-19 cases, compared to 326 in May, based on EODY data. The rise is attributed, in part, to foreign arrivals.
