Re: New Variant COVID in Crete?

Warwick - I get my figures on Facebook from Coronavirus News Crete. Firstly they publish the overall Greek figures then they give the numbers for Crete. Usually in the afternoon.

Re: New Variant COVID in Crete?

I was in Palekastro for two weeks in October. We have been going there since 1994 and were married in the former town hall (now closed). I was boasting to friends back in the UK that there was no hint of the virus where we were, which (as you on this forum all know) is at the very far end of eastern...

Mask or no mask

Big confusion in Palekastro, Sitia, whether the wearing of masks outdoors as well as in is for everywhere in Greece or just the red areas. Anyone know the exact rule ?

Re: Islands removed from list - but not Crete

Thanks for your view, Warwick. To me, it seems inexplicable and certainly unfair.

Islands removed from list - but not Crete

Today's announcement: "Travellers returning from the Greek islands of Lesbos, Tinos, Serifos, Santorini and Zakynthos will no longer need to self-isolate."

So, presumably that means Crete has worse Covid stats than these islands ? Anyone able to confirm ?

Re: Covid/Vit D

Cut all this rubbish. I just want a vaccine ASAP so I don't get the virus and can start to lead a normal life again.

Re: Latest Covid stats for Crete

Thanks so much YandY and Warwick - very helpful. I was rather hoping the UK might free Crete from their restrictions before I fly to Heraklion (onwards to Palekastro, Sitia) on October 11. Looks like I am going to have a huge shop for booze and food before we go to keep us going during quarantine !

Latest Covid stats for Crete

Does anyone know if updated virus stats for Crete are published anywhere ? I know there aren't many crystal balls around but what is the likelihood of Crete being taken off the UK quarantine list any time soon ? Grateful for views/information.
