The mandatory use of face mask at schools, universities and at all educational institutions will be lifted on June 1, the Greece’s Education Ministry announced on Wednesday.
The only exception will be during any type of exams such as the end of year exams or for university entry where students are required to attend the procedure in indoor spaces, it was noted.
Last week the government announced that the mandate to wear a mask in all indoor and outdoor public spaces will be lifted from June 1 through September 15, 2022.
Exempted are hospitals, health care institutions, nursing homes for seniors and public transport means without numbered seats.
The country’s epidemiologists’ committee is scheduled to announce provisions for ships and ferries next week, media reported on Wednesday.
