Greek tourism is gradually “reopening” its gates with health security and caution to welcome visitors to the country, according to the country’s tourism minister Harry Theoharis, and deputy tourism minister, Manos Konsolas.
In a joint statement on Friday, the two tourism heads highlighted that tourism is reopening throughout Greece under the same conditions.
As underlined in the statement, the country’s health security is based on the four pillars of the “Restart Tourism” plan:
1) The careful selection of countries of origin of tourists in accordance to health criteria,
2) Sampling tests that will allow the situation’s continuous assessment by experts,
3) The announced health protocols that see to curb the spread of the virus, and
4) Shielding health on every destination so that neither permanent residents nor visitors are exposed to any danger, and this way each destination is supported through the collaboration of the Health Ministry, the Civil Protection Ministry, EODY and any relative services.
“We are reopening while knowing that everyone, wherever they choose to spend their holidays, will receive the care they need. The government does not take shortcuts for neither the safety of citizens and visitors nor the opening of the economy. Greek tourism, with unity, a plan and a lot of work from all of us, will overcome this unprecedented, foreign, adventure,” they underlined.
