The archaeological sites in Greece opened on Monday to visitors, following the easing of measures against the spread of the coronavirus disease.

More than 200 archaeological sites in the country will resume business today, according to the Greek Ministry of Culture.

They are the first cultural sites to return to normal operations, followed by open-air cinemas on June 1, museums on June 15 and art events on July 15, Culture Minister Lina Mendoni said.

The sites will operate from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time with safety measures, according to the instructions of the country’s National Public Health Organisation.

These include keeping a distance of 1.5 meters (5 feet) between people and ensuring a maximum number of visitors per archaeological site.

There will also be special rules for sanitary facilities, while mask wearing and the use of hand sanitizer are recommended.
