The northern regional units of Kavala, Imathia, Pieria and Pella have become the latest to be slapped with a mini-lockdown by civil protection authorities to stem the spread of Covid-19.
The restrictions will go into effect at 6 a.m. on Friday and will be reviewed on September 24 depending on the course of coronavirus cases.
All movement in the regional units will be banned between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. except for medical emergencies and work, while music is not allowed at clubs, bars and cafés to prevent overcrowding.
Parties and other gatherings of more than 20 people are also forbidden, both in private and public setting, with the fines for violating this restriction ranging from 50,000 to 200,000 euros.
The Civil Protection authority also announced that existing restrictions imposed on the regional units of Evrytania and Argolida will be extended for at least another week.
