Although infection rates remain high, Greece is reopening schools
Greece will reopen schools starting next week, although cases of infections have risen to alarming levels in recent days. The news was announced by the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in a press conference where he said that the tests that can be done at home helped to take this step.
Recall that the Greek state has offered two free tests for every resident for each month that the pandemic will last. This way, anyone who has symptoms, or has had contact with an infected person can self-test before going to school or work, allowing a good deal of economic activity to take place physically.
From 12 April, all primary and secondary school students will attend classes in person, although of course it will still be mandatory to wear masks and maintain distances.
