Greek government announces reopening retail sector with restrictions as of April 5

Greek government announces reopening retail sector with restrictions as of April 5

The retail sector is opening as of Monday (April 5) under restrictions, Deputy Civil Protection Minister for crisis management Nikos Hardalias announced during a live briefing on Wednesday, ANA reports.
Hardalias pointed out the stores would operate with the “click away” and “click in shop” methods – picking up online orders and trying on clothes and shoes in person, in both cases by appointment – while those in multiplexes and malls would remain shut. (Shoppers will be able to send messages to 13032, which had been established at an earlier time.)
As of Saturday (April 3), up to 3 people in a group or a family will be able to travel between municipalities for exercise or excursions, as long as they observe health measures including wearing masks, he noted. This relaxation of inter-city travel restrictions is allowed only on weekends and will be done on a pilot basis.
The coronavirus measures – treading a fine line between trying to contain a spike in infections and allowing people to go outdoors – were proposed, he clarified, by the Health Ministry’s committee of experts, who recommended “adjustments to current measures” after recognizing a pressing need for people to spend time outdoors in spring. 
As to the reopening of schools, no decision will be made prior to next week, Hardalias noted, which is when the reopening of malls will also be considered.
“Let us leave our homes, observing measures, and let us let steam off but avoiding crowds in homes and at small spaces, which we know well only help to spread infections,” the minister added, acknowledging lockdown fatigue and warning against relaxing health rules.
