Lockdown of schools and universities extended to May 10


Greece’s Education Ministry said Friday that it will extend the period during which schools and universities will have to remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The closure is now extended until May 10.

The decision was made on the recommendation of the expert committee advising the government on its response to Covid-19.

Asked to comment on speculation that schools will remain closed for the rest of the academic year, Education Minister Niki Kerameus told Skai TV on Friday that no such recommendation has been received by the ministry until now.
