Undersecretary of Civil Protection Nikos Hardalias announced that from 9 pm on Saturday until Easter Monday at midnight, the exceptional travel to provide assistance to people in need (code B4) will be checked “sweepingly, thoroughly and diligently” by control instruments throughout the country, in relation to the point of departure and destination and will only be possible with up to two people per vehicle.

The aim is to prevent unnecessary travel for those who plan to go to friends or relations homes and to have a crowd both on Holy Saturday night for the table with the meal, after the Resurrection, and for Easter Sunday for the spit roasting on the barbeque
