This year’s Oxi Day parades are set to go ahead following an exemption and approval by the health ministry, which set out guidelines for the celebrations – chiefly that a SafePass is required.

The anniversary held on October 28 celebrates Greece’s rejection of fascist Italy’s ultimatum issued in 1940 during the Second World War.

The education ministry detailed that the guidelines set out by the health ministry dictate that the student parades have been given the green light provided that those in attendance – including the audience – have a valid SafePass.

The numbers of those permitted participate have also been reduced to about half of those during pre-pandemic parades.
