Note to readers

Readers are advised that while Greece’s archaeological sites are back in operation, all public and private museums, galleries, entertainment and concert spaces remain closed on the orders of the country’s health authorities in a bid to contain the Covid-19 outbreak.

Kathimerini English Edition will be back with its What’s On listings of cultural events when the crisis blows over. In the meantime, we advise our readers to comply with all the emergency health measures being put in place and to stay safe.

Monochrome | Athens | To March 18

Blank Wall Gallery in downtown Athens is hosting an exhibition titled “Monochrome,” featuring black-and-white photos by artists from all over the world, with creativity being the common denominator. 



Operation under way to boost remote islands’ health defences


Four dinghies took four teams of doctors and nurses to Milos, Kimolos, Folegandros and Sikonos, covering more than 200 nautical miles in 31 hours, and collected about 200 samples as part of an initiative to conduct coronavirus tests and to ascertain the health infrasture needs of remote islands. The operation by the National Organization for Public Health (EODY) and volunteers, which took place on Monday and Tuesday, also sought to send the message that remote islands receive the same care from the state as the rest of Greece, especially in view of the start of the tourist season. With dozens of remote islands having only basic health infrastructure, more such initiatives are to take place over the summer, with the next one expected most likely in early June. [EODY]
