New Restriction for Dining Out in Greece

Aloha Everyone,

Our final day in Syros, this morning’s sunrise was beautiful. However not all is calm as it appears.

Effective last Saturday, a new government restriction has been imposed that all diners whether you are sitting outdoors or indoors must show your original covid vaccine cards. EU citizens have their own digital form. For others, restaurant servers and in some cases owners seemed confused.

We were immediately seated inside and after setting our table, our server asked if she could see the photocopies of our vaccine cards. Other restaurant owners were insisting to see the original vaccine cards of diners.

By the time we arrive in Rhodes, hopefully this new rule will have been clarified. J.J. suspects the new restriction is to pressure the unvaccinated to get their shots.

Our ferry to Rhodes leaves at 9:30 pm. We are keeping our hotel room until departure.

Aloha -- Cathi
