Greece, Italy and other European countries lift the restriction on mandatory mask wearing outdoors
The authorities in Greece, Italy and Spain have decided to ease the quarantine restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The authorities in Greece, Italy and Spain have decided to ease the quarantine restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. These countries canceled the mandatory wearing of masks outdoors:

  • from June 24th - in Greece;
  • from the 26th - in Spain;
  • from the 28th - in Italy.

This restriction was introduced in October 2020. To date, some European countries are not yet ready to lift it - for example, Portugal. There is another surge in infections, which is why strict quarantine measures are still in effect. In addition to that, for all of the above countries wearing masks indoors continues to be mandatory.

What restrictions have been removed?

Starting Monday, 28th of June, Greece has lifted the curfew. As for Spain, it will resume receiving tourists from the UK from June 30th. In Italy, first restrictions were lifted back in April, when most public institutions (cafes, restaurants, gyms, etc.) were open to the public. The easing of quarantine measures is attributed to the active promotion of the vaccination campaign and the issuance of COVID passports in the EU.
