Thus, the increase of the epidemiological burden resulted in the cancellation of the parades in the prefectures of Eastern Macedonia, Thrace and Thessaly , as well as in the prefectures of Imathia, Pieria , but also in the prefecture of Pella. In fact, yesterday's epidemiological picture in the specific areas is indicative, since the spread of the coronavirus throughout Northern Greece remained steadily increased, with Imathia recording 140 cases, Pella 122 and Pieria 114.

Those attending the parades should wear a mask, according to government spokesman Giannis Oikonomou. “I urge everyone who comes to watch the parades to follow the current health protocols, to wear a mask, as this is required even outdoors when conditions of coloration prevail. For those who parade, the use of a mask will not be mandatory, since they will be lined up. However, before and after the parade, they should also wear their masks “, said Mr. Oikonomou.
