Greek President welcomes back ‘small pleasures’ as cafes and restaurants reopen

President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou welcomed the reopening of the country’s cafes and restaurants after six months, hailing the gradual return of life’s “small everyday pleasures.”

“Enjoying a coffee and a friendly chat with doctors from Evangelismos and Sotiria [hospitals], we are reliving those small everyday pleasures which we took for granted until the pandemic took them away from us,” she tweeted.

Cafes and restaurants finally reopened in Greece on Monday for sit-in service for the first time in nearly six months.

The Greek Government begins loosening coronavirus restrictions.

A maximum of six customers is allowed per table, while staff must carry out compulsory coronavirus home self-tests. Music is also not allowed.

A nightly curfew which has been in force from 9 p.m, is now 11 p.m, with food and beverage establishments allowed to remain open until 15 minutes before curfew.

Whoever wishes to dine at cafes and restaurants must send a text message to 13033 with code 6.
