All the hygiene and safety rules for Covid-19 will be strictly observed in the premises, with the mandatory use of a mask throughout the stay, while there will be natural ventilation and an antiseptic solution.
In addition, the street teams of the Reception and Solidarity Center of the Municipality of Athens (KYADA) will continue to instruct the urban homeless on their protection and will offer cool water, essentials and first aid, as well as inform them about the operation of air-conditioned rooms.
It is noted that in order to receive better service, interested persons should first contact either the Friendship Club of their choice, or the 1595 citizen service telephone line, or the call center 210 5277000.
Finally, the municipal clinics of the municipality of Athens have launched a “Helpline” which provides information to support the residents of the city (210 3638049, from 08:30 to 19:30).
The National Meteorological Observatory’s weather service on Monday warned of rising temperatures in many parts of the country since Thursday, as airflow from Africa that hit western and northern Europe last week veered towards Greece.
Civil protection authorities advise residents and visitors to avoid unnecessary walks, especially during the hottest midday hours. Extra care should be taken when it comes to children and the elderly.
