The northern Greek regions of Imathia, Kilkis, Pella and Pieria will be subject to stricter restrictions on public gatherings and bar/restaurant opening hours for two weeks starting at 6 a.m. on Friday.

Deputy Minister for Civil Protection Nikos Hardalias said on Thursday that the new measures include the closure of all restaurants, bars and cafes from midnight to 7 a.m., a ban on church parades, farmers’ markets and other events that gather large numbers.

They also include the prohibition of gatherings – in public or private spaces – of more than nine people, a limit of four on the number of people permitted to sit around the same restaurant/bar table (six if they are members of the same household) and the mandatory use of masks in all outdoor and indoor public spaces.
