In-person lectures resume with extra checks at Panteion

Meanwhile, some lectures will be held at municipal halls in proximity to the university in a bid to support physical distancing and reduce transmission. Skeptics nevertheless criticized the government for failing to take health measures to protect vulnerable students and faculty staff.
