So, the final hurdle is over. The government has announced who's been added to the naughty list for the week, and Greece isn't on it, so we're definitely flying out on Sunday.
There is one more issue, and that's Greece being quarantined while we're there. I'm very hopeful, and we only have to survive next Thursday's decision. The yardstick used by the British government is 20 new case in a week per 100,000 people. For Greece that's 2,147 cases in a week, which averages at 307 cases a day. The days which will feed into next week's decision should be Thursday (yesterday) through to next Wednesday. We already have yesterday's figure in, and it's 250, so that's already a head start.
If Greece survives next week, then it won't affect us if it's quarantined the week after. That would be announced on Thursday 3rd, to come into affect at 4:00am on Saturday 5th. Out flight home is due to land at 22:10pm on Friday 4th, so the flight would have to be delayed by 6 hours to get caught.
