The restrictions were expected to take effect on January 3. Now they will take effect on December 30.

A new record number of infections was also recorded in the country on Wednesday, December 29: health authorities announced 28,828 new cases of coronavirus. In addition, dozens of deaths are recorded daily through Covid-19. According to Health Minister Thanos Pleuris, a new strain of coronavirus, Omicron, has become dominant in Greece.

Among the new quarantine restrictions are the following: mandatory mask regime in supermarkets and public transport; change of schedule and additional order regarding remote work for civil servants; entertainment establishments will close at midnight, but on New Year's Eve they will be allowed to work until 02:00.
