Masks, where are they compulsory?

The protective mask for coronavirus is mandatory:
In Public Transport

in taxis

in hospitals

in the doctor’s offices

in diagnostic centers

in beauty salons

in supermarkets

on ships

on planes

At the same time, the fine of 150 euros remains in force for those who do not wear a mask where it is mandatory. In particular, the relevant Joint Ministerial Decision states:

“In the areas of arrival and waiting, as well as inside the vehicles and trains, the staff and the passengers are obliged to wear a non-medical protective mask.”


There is constant discussion as to whether or not children should wear a mask when leaving the house.Information on the use of a surgical or other type of cloth mask as a means of preventing and limiting the spread of coronavirus is still confusing. So it is not yet clear whether it is appropriate to wear a coronavirus mask or not. However, more and more official bodies, such as the World Health Organization and the American Center for Infection Control and Prevention (CDC), but also Greek experts recommend the use of a mask for those who have to move indoors where they may come into close contact ( that is, to be at a distance of less than 1.5-2 meters) with others.The experts’ instructions are clear: according to the CDC, face masks should not be used on children aged 2 and under! The reason is not only that they do not offer effective protection but mainly that they can endanger their lives!.
