I agree in principle but I am a bit worried about the first word?

Various announcements regarding the extension of the lockdown to Jan 7th here:

although we still await confirmation that households can mingle over Christmas:

Regarding movement for the “Christmas table”, house-to-house visits, government spokesman Stelios Petsas said that new announcements will be after evaluation of the measures impact after a week.

If anyone wants to mix with another household when the regulations are relaxed on Xmas Eve/Day and New Year's Eve/Day a metakinisi is still required. Option six (exercise).

I haven't seen it specified but I would guess again use Item 6. It seems to be the go to Item if they allow some activity for a period of time that doesn't fit into any of the other categories. It might be worth using the written form rather than the SMS and put Attend Church on it.

Lockdown will probably be extended beyond 18th January due to the epiphany
and the mass gatherings at churches, will they ever learn.

Is it me,but understandably you cannot travel in your own car to a different prefecture and supposedly only go out for a good reason,yet today there are flights to heraklion from 2 from thessaloniki,2 from frankfurt 1 from rome 1 from tirana and about 6 from athens,it might e better to have stopped flights for 10 days or so

Yes, and why the quarantine only for those from abroad? https://www.tharrosnews.gr/2021/01/7ime ... exoteriko/

Possibly because the levels of Covid infection is much higher in most foreign countries than in Greece?
Additionally, there are tight restrictions in domestic movement. I believe that you cannot take a domestic flight from, say Athens to Chania, unless you can prove that Chania is your main residence.
