New extension in quarantine for asylum seekers

25.06.2020

In a joint decision of the Ministry of Citizen Protection, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Migration and Asylum, the quarantine period at migrant admissions and registration centres in Greece and the Ritsona, Malakasa and Larisa migrant camps was extended until 5 July.

Although the Ministry of Migration and Asylum said the aim was to prevent increased cases of the coronavirus, the response of asylum seekers living in these centres was tremendously negative.

While the quarantine had not yet been imposed upon all of the population it had been imposed within migrant registration and admission centres in the islands, it had begun on 24 March and since then, quarantine has been continuously extended. Thus, with the new decision, asylum seekers in the migrant registration and admission centres will have completed 3.5 months in quarantine.
