Civil Protection extends “mini lockdown” in Chania and Zakynthos

Greece’s Civil Protection extended on Thursday the “mini lockdown” imposed on the island of Zakynthos and the Regional Unit of Chania, Crete, a week ago.

The extension of the restrictions such as night curfew and music ban follows a recommendation by the Committee of Infectious Diseases and the Protection of Public Health after evaluation of the epidemiological data in these two regions, a statement said.

The restriction measures are:

  • Traffic ban from 01:00 in the evening until 06:00 in the morning, with the exception for work and serious health reasons.
  • Prohibition of music around the clock in food service and entertainment facilities.

The “mini lockdown” restrictions are extended until 06:00 a.m. Wednesday, August 18, 2021

In its statement, the Civil Protection reminds “that in these areas, as well as throughout the country, it is forbidden to hold any form of events in exchange of [money?] with the physical presence of a crowd of more than twenty (20) people in a private, non-professional space.”

The administrative fine in case of violation amounts from 50,000 to 200,000 euros for the lessee or concessionaire of the private, non-professional space, in which the event in question took place or takes place.
