At 06:00 on Saturday morning, a universal quarantine will take effect throughout the country after the announcements of the Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

“There will be special care for seasonal workers, such as for the olive harvest,” said Mr. Mitsotakis, emphasizing that “the security of primary production and the provision of supply are important.”

However, at this time the olive is being harvested, a fact that has caused concern to farmers, as they do not know if they can move outside the prefecture in order to continue their agricultural work.

The primary sector will operate normally, as will the industrial and manufacturing activities, which means that the movement of those workers required to complete the olive harvest will normally take place with the presentation of a handwritten certificate and the IACS document.

For the olive harvest, as stated by the government spokesman, Stelios Petsas in SKAI 100.3, the workers must have a work certificate from their employer, while in the case of owners and heirs, E9 is required.

The Secretary General of Trade and Consumer Protection, Panagiotis Stampoulidis, announced special care for those who have to move for the olive harvest.

During the specialization of the measures for the second lockdown, Mr. Stampoulidis clarified that the movements of those required to complete the olive harvest are excluded from the bans.
