The obligation to send a text message (SMS) before leaving home during the pandemic will end as of May 15, Development & Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis told Skai TV on Sunday, according to ANA.
The system providing a choice of one of six reasons, sent to a five-digit number (13033) before leaving home, was first introduced in 2020 to restrict the spread of infection last year.
Georgiadis also said that picking up e-orders in person at most retailers by appointment (click away) and setting up appointments to shop in person at retailers (click in the shop) will also end on May 14.
Other changes will be extending circulation hours and permitting people to travel between prefectures, which is still banned, with exceptions.
In similar statements to national broadcaster ERT TV, Georgiadis said that indoor seating at food places is likely to restart early in June, depending on progress in vaccinations.
