Today, Greece enters a new nationwide lockdown for the second time to contain the resurgence of COVID-19. For the next three weeks, all citizen’s movement is restricted and all non-essential businesses will be closed.
The lockdown has a big impact on our operations. No one will be allowed to leave the perimeter of the camp, the bus company we use as a shuttle to and from our centre will not be allowed to work, and our team will not be allowed to distribute shower and laundry tickets inside camp.
Therefore, our centre will be closed for the next three weeks and our team will be taking a well deserved break. We hope that these three weeks will be enough to contain the spread of COVID-19, so that we can re-open our centre as soon as possible and continue to offer the vital services which are so needed.
