The Greek Ministry of Citizen Protection will be stepping up enforcement to make sure all businesses in Mykonos are complying with regulations put in place to help curb the spread of Covid-19.
According to police, the first checks have already been carried out in entertainment venues on the cosmopolitan island.
“We want to keep the island healthy and safe for every visitor and for the local community,” Greek Citizens Protection Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis said during his visit to the island on Wednesday where he met with local authorities.
Businesses are advised to adhere to the measures as inspections will be continuous and will be carried out 24 hours a day, in order to protect the health of citizens living on the island or tourists.
“Mykonos, at the moment, is safe from Covid-19. However, the dangers lurk and are before us every day”, the minister said.
In addition, the minister announced the establishment of the new police service on the island, which will be staffed with 120 new police officers. He also pointed out that special emphasis will be given to reducing road accidents, combating incidents of theft and dismantling drug trafficking networks.
