Greece's government has extended nationwide lockdown measures indefinitely but says retail stores and malls will reopen Monday with strict entrance limits.
Civil protection chief Nikos Hardalias said Friday that a nightly curfew, domestic travel restrictions and stay-at-home orders will all remain in effect after being first imposed in early November.
Retail stores and hair salons will reopen everywhere in Greece on Monday expect in areas with a high viral load, where the shops will operate using the click-and-collect model, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced in Parliament on Friday.
He said the government received a positive recommendation on the issue from the committee of experts advising it on the pandemic.
Deputy Minister for Civil Protection Nikos Hardalias announced Monday additional restrictions for the small town of Sperchiada in the region of Fthiotida, central Greece, after health authorities detected an increased number of coronavirus cases.
The measures will apply for 10 days, from January 5 to 6 a.m. on January 14.
