Night time curfew: Take away and delivery! Here is what will apply

Nikos Hardalias announced that despite the lockdown, the movements from 21:00 to 05:00 in the morning are even more limited, starting from Friday, 13.11.2020.

We first remind you that in the middle of a lockdown and between 21:00 in the evening and 05:00 in the morning, only travel will be allowed for the following reasons:

– health (SMS 1)

 – Escorting pets within walking distance of the residence (SMS 6).

Nikos Hardalias stressed that the reason for the tightening of measures is the government’s finding that there are unnecessary movements that facilitate the transmission of the virus. It is noted that SMS to 13033 is still required for travel for health reasons and to accompany a pet.

These will apply for delivery and take away in the strictest lockdown

According to the report, for take take away it is clear:  that the citizens will not be able to go out to buy food -even take away- after 21:00 and until 05:00 in the morning.

However, if someone is out “legally” at those times , ie for one of the three aforementioned reasons (work, health, pet escort) they will have the right to buy take away food.

As far as deliveries are concerned, home deliveries will continue to be valid until the companies close according to their schedule.

The above is confirmed by the announcement of the General Secretariat for Civil Protection, which specifically states: “Regarding the operation of take away and delivery during the hours 21.00 – 05.00, we clarify that there is no question of banning home delivery services during these hours.

We also clarify that the pick-up from stores in operation (take away) continues after 21.00 and throughout their opening hours, but not as an independent reason for movement, but within the framework of the allowed movements during these hours “.
