*these are just guides for hotels, for specific information regarding your stay please contact the hotel you've booked with for more information.
COVID-19 Information
While you're away from your home, you should know that Thassos has been preparing to address emergencies that arise due to the Coronavirus. Read on below to find out what you can expect if you happen to encounter any situations related to Covid-19 while on holiday on Thassos.
Will Thassos be safe?
Yes, Thassos will be a safe destination to visit this summer for everybody who follows the health and safety protocols which the Greek government has put into place.We’re confident about this because we have a proven track record. Greece very successfully managed the pandemic from day 1 through its strategy that is completely guided by science. Our successful strategy has been focused on five pillars: awareness, personal hygiene, social distancing, isolation and testing, and track-and-trace.
The Greek government has kept the public well-informed of the real situation based on scientific data. Having this data has empowered the people to make informed decisions in order to protect themselves and those around them.
Personal Hygiene
Every person is responsible for keeping themselves and the people they encounter safe. We can achieve this by washing our hands regularly with soap and water, using antiseptics when on the move, wearing a mask when inside public places, coughing or sneezing into the back of our elbow, and avoiding touching our faces.
Social Distancing
Greeks love to socialize and be close to one another but social distancing is an important part of the national strategy against Covid-19. Instead of shaking hands you can do an “elbow bump”. Instead of hugging and kissing cheeks you can blow a kiss (without blowing air). Instead of standing next to someone you can stand 1.5 metres away. Taking small measures like these make a big impact.
Isolation & Testing
As soon as a Covid-19 case is suspected, the person and their household go into temporary isolation. A cotton-swab is used to take a sample of the person’s saliva which is sent to hospital labs for molecular testing. This test takes up to 24 hours but offers extreme accuracy.
Track and Trace
When a test comes back positive, the highly specialized Covid-19 responders begin the track-and-trace procedures. They rely on victims to inform them of the people and places they visited recently. Then they rapidly visit these people and places, take new samples from the people for testing, and order the places to temporarily close down for disinfecting procedures.

Thanks to this strategy and the efforts of every person, we were able to limit the spread of the virus during the “first wave” in Greece. We will continue our efforts and we ask that you help us keep Thassos and Greece safe by adhering to the health and safety protocols
How will cases be managed on Thassos?
If a positive case is discovered on Thassos, the local authorities have a plan to manage it quickly in order to keep you and everybody else safe.
Thassos Covid-19 Testing Unit | Covid-19 Rapid Response Mobile Unit
On 22/05/2020, the Greek state equipped Thassos with a dedicated Covid-19 rapid response mobile unit. This unit has the capability to respond to any suspected cases of Covid-19 on the entire island. They will go directly to any location where there is a suspected case in order to take a saliva sample and send it to the lab in Kavala’s General Hospital.

While waiting for the results, the person who is tested will temporarily self-isolate with everybody in their party, for example, their family and friends who are on holiday with them.

If the test result is positive and Covid-19 is discovered, everybody else in their party will then get tested. Anybody who tests positive will be quarantined for 14 days in a special location provided by the state.

If the case becomes serious or critical, the patient will be taken by a special Covid-19 ambulance to Kavala’s General Hospital for treatment.

The Greek state will cover the accommodation costs for any tourist that tests positive for the coronavirus while on holiday in Greece. It is not yet known if they will cover food and medical costs.
Sources & Additional Information
What You Should Know
Covid-19 Symptoms

Most common symptoms:
dry cough

Less common symptoms:
aches & pains
sore throat
loss of taste or smell
a rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes

Serious symptoms:
difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
chest pain or pressure
loss of speech or movement

Seek immediate medical attention if you have serious symptoms. Always call before visiting your doctor or health facility.

People with mild symptoms who are otherwise healthy should manage their symptoms at home. On average it takes 5–6 days from when someone is infected with the virus for symptoms to show, however it can take up to 14 days.
Getting Help
If you suspect that you or someone with you is showing Covid-19 symptoms, please self-isolate immediately and then inform your accommodation host without coming into direct contact with other people.

Your host will then call a special hotline on your behalf to report the suspected case and help will be on the way to you.
General Hospital of Kavala
Located in the regional capital of Kavala, on the mainland, the general hospital is equipped with a special Covid-19 treatment center for serious cases. It takes about 1.5 hours to travel from Thassos to the hospital using the frequent ferry connections of the island.
Hotels & Resorts
Accommodation on Thassos
You're probably wondering what your stay will be like during your time here. Be rest assured that accommodations on Thassos will be following very specific health and safety protocols to ensure you have the best holiday experience!
Hotels on Thassos opened in 2 phases:

June 1, 2020: Year-round hotels
June 15, 2020: Seasonal hotels & resorts (the majority of accommodation on Thassos)The Greek government has mandated various protocols to ensure the health and safety of guests and staff. Hotels must register for and display the "Health First" certification in a prominent place. This certification indicates that the business is complying with public health protocols.
Health First certification
"Health First" CertificationThe most basic requirement is for all establishments to have clearly defined procedures in place to manage suspected cases of Covid-19. This will allow for swift action to be taken to reduce spread of the virus to other guests and staff. Hotels with 50 or more rooms are required to have a doctor on call who will coordinate with the Greek National Health Organization to test suspected cases of Covid-19.

Hotels are required to keep a log of all guests which includes names, nationalities, dates of arrival and departure, and contact details which will be used for contact tracing should a coronavirus case is identified at the hotel.

In order to ensure that rooms are properly sanitized, check in and check out times have been extended. The mandatory check-out time is 11am and the check-in time is 3pm. These time changes are necessary to give cleaning staff the extra time necessary to ensure that your room will be properly cleaned and sterilized.

It’s important to note that only guests of the hotel are allowed to enter the premises. This means you cannot bring family or friends staying in another hotel into your room.

Outdoor pools will operate but with a capacity of 1 person per 5 sq. m. of pool surface area. Indoor swimming pools will not be allowed to operate.

If you are curious about the many other health and safety protocols that the government has mandated for hotels, please visit this page on the Ministry of Tourism website.

You should be rest assured that the government is doing all that it can to ensure you have a safe and healthy holiday to Greece.

We recommend that you contact your host for any questions or concerns related to Covid-19 during your stay.
Organized tourist campsites will be open starting 1 June, 2020. Children's campgrounds will open starting 29 June, 2020.

Similar to hotels, campgrounds must have an action plan established in order to respond to any suspected cases of the coronavirus. This includes a log of all guest details (names, nationalities, arrival and departure dates, and contact information) in the event of a later coronavirus case being detected.

Beaches on Thassos are open and ready to welcome you!
Organized Beaches
Organized beaches will follow health and safety protocols to ensure your safety.

The government is requiring that all organized beaches control the number of people entering beach areas to 40 people per 1000 sq. m.

Umbrellas must be placed far enough apart from one another to allow for physical distancing between sunbathers. For instance, the poles of beach umbrellas must be 4 or more meters apart from each other and the edges of each umbrella must be 1 or more meters apart. Only 2 people are allowed under each umbrella.

Sunbeds on organized beaches will be sterilized between each use and you will be required to place a towel on the sunbed.

Any sports requiring physical contact are not permitted.
Unorganized Beaches
If you prefer beaches free of beach chairs and umbrellas (unorganized), you'll be enjoying the beach at your own risk. You and other visitors should take all necessary measures to ensure that your experience will be safe and healthy. If you find yourself at a crowded beach, we recommend that you find a new location that is less crowded.
Have no fear! You will be able to enjoy swimming pools while on holiday this year.

Outdoor swimming pools will be allowed to operate during the summer. Unfortunately though, indoor swimming pools will remain closed for safety reasons.

To avoid overcrowding, limits to the amount of people in the pool at any one time apply. For instance, there can only be 1 person per 2.5 square meters of pool surface area.

Chairs and sunbeds (in groups of 2) are to be spaced apart allowing guests to maintain a 2 meter distance from others. For your safety and that of others, a towel should be placed on the surface of the chair.
