Greece Announces Closure of Border Crossing with Albania as Part of Covid-19 Restrictions

The Greek government announced that it will close its border crossing with Albania in Kapshtica as of Friday morning and test all people entering the country through its land borders, according to government spokesman Stelios Petsas quoted by ekathimerini.com on Thursday.
The border crossings at Kakavia, Evzoni and Promachonas will remain open, while only trucks will be allowed to enter from Nymphaea, the crossing connecting Greece and Bulgaria.
Visitors going to Greece through its land borders will still have to present a negative PCR test conducted 72 hours before arrival there.
Petsas said that health authorities will boost checks and testing in northern Greece to get a clearer idea of the epidemiological load.
“The situation in our country remains critical. Yesterday's [Wednesday] data of EODY showed that the positivity rates in several areas of northern Greece remain at very high levels if we consider that we have been in lockdown mode for weeks,” he told a regular press briefing.
