A five-hour night curfew and other restrictions have been imposed on Mykonos, one of Greece’s most popular tourist destinations, due to a “worrying” surge in Covid-19 cases. This was reported by local media, according to which the authorities have ordered a curfew from one to six and a ban on playing music for bars, restaurants and night clubs. The measures, as explained by the Deputy Minister of Civil Protection Nikos Hardalias, are effective immediately and will last until 26 July.
“We ask the residents, tourists and entrepreneurs of our beautiful island to faithfully follow the measures so that the spread of the virus can be quickly controlled and Mykonos can return to normal,” said Hardalias. The same deputy minister on July 15 had warned that active cases on the island had quadrupled, exceeding 300 in just a week.
