As part of ongoing efforts to ensure that safety protocols are being adhered to, the Hellenic Police (ELAS) said on Monday that it had conducted a total of 48,328 inspections around the country on Sunday and recorded 174 violations for failure to wear a mask or observe physical distancing.

Officers also recorded 14 infringements of safety regulations by private businesses, three of which were obliged to temporarily suspend their operations – in Attica, Thessaloniki and Western Greece. 

Following a recent spike in infections, ELAS has intensified its checks in the capital, northern Greece and other parts of the country where clusters of cases have been reported.
