Greece ends face mask rule in public transport


Greece ended the face mask rule, which was introduced in April 2020 amid the COVID-19 breakout, said local media on Monday.

However, mask use will remain mandatory for visitors and employees of health institutions, including hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centres as well as care centres for elderly people, public broadcaster ERT reported.

Unvaccinated employees of the above-mentioned institutions will have to wear high-protection respiratory masks (FFP2 or N95 or KN95) and be tested at least twice a week for COVID-19, according to the broadcaster.
