Greece plans to lift its one-week quarantine requirement for tourists from European Union countries from Monday.
The government’s plan is yet to be approved by epidemiology experts on Friday, the Kathimerini daily reported Thursday.
The prerequisite would be that tourists are fully vaccinated or have a current negative PCR test.
Some of those who arrive would also be subject to random testing.
In the country itself, tourists must adhere to coronavirus rules, including a general mask requirement.
Athens originally planned to announce the start of the tourist season on May 14 and lift the quarantine requirement at that time.
Based on the viral load in the wastewater samples, Greek virologists expected the number of new coronavirus infections in the country to continue to decline in the coming weeks.
Greek health authorities reported 3,089 new infections in 24 hours on Thursday, nearly 1,000 fewer than the day before. (dpa / NAN)
