Health and Safety concerns

Some participants have asked about the protocol against COVID in Greece.
Please read thoroughly the official portal which is available in quite a few languages. In a nutshell:
If you are fully vaccinated and have a certificate, you do not have to show a negative test. Otherwise, you should present a recent negative PCR or rapid test result. Important note: For the Russian Federation, from 30.6 passengers must carry a negative PCR or rapid test result regardless if they are vaccinated or not.
Tourists must fill in a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) before arriving in Greece. You can fill in yours on the portal.
In the hotel, you should always follow the guidelines of the hotel personnel.
The protocol of the Greek Chess Federation orders for the players who are not vaccinated, to have one additional PCR or rapid test during the week.
Of course, the solvers should wear protective masks when seated; and obviously, we do not intend to act as police. Common sense should prevail.
