Greece abolishes mandatory mask use for schools


Greece is set to abolish the mandator mask rule for the education sector, according to a government announcement on Wednesday which will see the rule removed from schools, universities and at all educational institutions as of June 1.

The only exception will be holding any type of exams (end-of-year exams or university entry exams) where students are required to attend the procedure in indoor spaces, it was noted.

Last week the government had announced that the mandate to wear face masks in all indoor and outdoor public spaces is also lifted from June 1 through September 15, except for public transport, hospitals and care facilities for the elderly.
