    ATHENS - The Acropolis in Athens and the most important archaeological sites in Greece will reopen on May 18 while museums will instead reopen on June 15, Culture Minister Lina Mendoni announced Thursday in a press conference. The Acropolis and other sites had been closed since mid-March as part of containment measures for COVID-19. Social distancing measures will remain in place and few people will be allowed to enter at a time. Greece began partially reopening on Monday, beginning with hairdressers and small shops.

    On May 18 high schools will reopen, followed by cafes, bars, small restaurants and summer open-air cinemas so long as there is no surge in COVID-19 cases in the country in the meantime. Greece, with a population of 10.7 million inhabitants, has seen 147 with COVID-19 die and 2,663 infections. These numbers are lower than the EU average.
