Main opposition SYRIZA said on Wednesday it will table an amendment that will require unvaccinated people to present a negative Covid-19 test result to enter churches.

Churches are one of only three places – the others being pharmacies and supermarkets – that are exempted from new government measures that go into effect on Saturday that require unvaccinated people to present a negative Covid-19 test result to enter a range of businesses and services, including state services, banks, restaurants and retail shops.

Speaking in parliament, SYRIZA’s parliamentary representative Nikos Pappas criticized the exemption of churches from the new measures. [AMNA]
