Mykonos: Re-evaluation in the next 24 hours
As far as Mykonos is concerned, Hardalias said that there will be a re-valuation of the epidemiological data in the next 24 hours and will be decided accordingly whether the restriction will be lifted on Monday, July 26 or extended.
He added that the extraordinary restrictive measures imposed on the island have partially stopped the further spread of the coronavirus.
The epidemiological data at the moment show a high epidemiological burden, but also a partial stabilization of the situation, while a small downward trend is beginning to appear, Hardalias pointed out. He added “At the same time it appears that there are no new outbreaks and any new cases related to already existing confluences of previous weeks.”
He stressed that “the measures on Mykonos are valid until Monday morning and their extension or not will be evaluated in the next 24 hours, and the relevant announcements will be made in time.”
He underlined that the government will intervene with local measures where deemed necessary to ensure the public health.
He also announced that from Monday, sweeping inspections will be carried out in all companies for compliance with the measures and health protocols, both in Mykonos and other areas with an epidemiological burden that raises concerns.

The map you show with the daily reporting of cases is based purely on case numbers in each area. The map referenced above relates to risk and is based on a number of factors combined in some way. The control measures are dependent on risk BUT where can people find those control measures? They used to be described on the same web page as the risk map but they no longer are so where are they?
Also the map says “At the two highest levels (orange and red) Public Health measures are provided at the level of PE or Municipality.” Where can people find these measures? For example I live in the Prefecture of Chania so where does Chania publish its specific measures? Are the regional specific measures on top of more general measures or are there no general measures now and what is the difference between green and yellow when it comes to measures.
Throughout the pandemic I have tried to understand all the various measures and follow them closely. Today I have no idea at all what the measures are or where I can find them.
measures according to Level are listed on the map website
