Greece has opened its borders without a mandatory quarantine only for EU citizens
Greece has opened its borders and started receiving EU citizens without a mandatory quarantine after arrival starting Monday at 11:00 local time, Bulgarian police said. The opening took place an hour earlier than initially announced, reports BTA from the Kulata crossing point between Bulgaria and Greece.
The Greek border authorities distribute to persons entering Greece forms to be filled in with the full name of the person and the destination of the journey. Coronavirus tests are performed randomly. If the test is positive, the person will be quarantined for 14 days.
A long line of vehicles waiting to cross the border formed early Monday morning, and by noon the queue was several kilometres long. The cars waiting at Kulata came from Bulgaria, Romania, Germany and other European countries, according to BTA.
Greece also reopened its two major airports, Athens and Thessaloniki, on Monday, while regional airports are set to reopen on July 1.
As at the land borders, random tests for COVID-19 will be conducted at Athens and Thessaloniki airports by June 30. "Those who will be tested will have to wait for the result - that is, one day - in a hotel of their choice. If someone is tested positive, he will remain in quarantine for 14 days, "Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas was quoted as saying in a press briefing on Monday.
Greek authorities also reopened all museums in the country on Monday, after visitors were allowed to visit only a few archaeological sites in late May. Visitors and leisure parks, hot springs, gyms and other places related to the tourist season have also been waiting for their visitors since Monday.
The Spaniards were frightened and returned to harsh measures. Spain decided on Wednesday (May 6th) to extend the state of emergency for another two weeks. That was after it was given free to walks and physical activities.
Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called on the parliament, which approved the measure, after easing the restrictions, bringing the number of cases of illness to 3,121 on May 6. This is after, after the end of April and the beginning of May, they had stabilized at 850 -1,200 new cases per day.
Spain has registered 256,855 cases of COVID-19 disease and over 26,000 deaths. The Sanchez government wants to gradually lift the measures of isolation at home and at the same time control the implementation of measures of social distancing and hygiene among the population.
Home isolation was imposed on March 14 and the state of emergency was due to end on Saturday, May 9, but will be extended until May 24. Although the opposition claimed that 60 days of state of emergency were illegal, it had to vote on the law for national security.
5 ideas that only need paper, pencils and pens. Children during quarantine are easily getting boring. That’s why, Bemorepanda decided to collect the best games for children and parents to play during quarantine.
A fun and simple game in which you need to create stories. Each person takes a piece of paper, writes one adjective on top. Then he folds the paper to close the word, and transfers it to another player in a circle. On a new sheet you need to write a name. Then the actions are repeated.
The order further should be as follows:
one more name;
what the characters do;
what the first said to the second;
what the second answered;
what happened after;
what people thought.
Words can change, for example, instead of the names of people, you can write the names of animals. You can also add additional moves, for example, indicate what was worn on the person. Try to come up with funnier options to make the story as fun as possible.
2. Puppet theater
To make dolls yourself, cut out the drawn figures or pictures from magazines and glue a thin (3-4 cm) strip of paper to their back. Glue or staple the ends of the strip. Now, improvised dolls can be put on your finger and play with them any funny scenes. And if you have a printer, dolls can be printed.
You can also put a real theatrical performance at home. To do this, you need to come up with a fun story, draw or print masks of heroes (for example, fairy-tale characters or animals), put them on your faces and get used to the role.
3. Dots and squares
Ideally, a piece of paper is needed for the game. Draw a wide square - this is a playing field. Take two multi-colored felt-tip pens or a pencil. The first player draws a line two cages in length anywhere inside the field. Then the other player must do the same.
If there is no sheet in the cage at hand, use the usual one. Draw a playing field, and inside at the same distance - about 1 cm - place the dots. The move will be the connection of two points with a horizontal or vertical line.
Your task is to paint over all or almost all of the edges of the cell with your own color: 3 or 4 edges - your cell, if 2 by 2 - it goes to the player who set the final line. Inside the filled square, write the letter of your name. Whose squares will be more, he won.
Crossword puzzles can be found on the Internet or compiled by yourself. To make words easier, choose a topic, such as colors, space, or animals. You can use puzzles as tasks.
To help your child learn math, you can use examples instead of verbal questions. But the child will still need to enter answers in the crossword puzzle in words. For example, 4 + 4 =? Answer: eight.
5. Crocodile on paper
The principle is the same as in the classic game: one participant explains to others the hidden word. Only it needs to be drawn, not gestured.
If you play together or three, everyone comes up with his own words. If you are four or more, guess each other's words one by one: who guesses, he draws as follows.

Bemorepanda found out what to expect after lifting the restrictions. During quarantine we found out industries that are supposed to grow up rapidly during quarantine. We started using service that maybe where unnecessary for us before the pandemic. Here are the industries that are going to have a great success after the quarantine ends.
1. Grocery retail
No matter what happens, people will be hungry. In a stressful situation, we buy even more products. The process of absorption of food calms, and stocks on the shelves alleviate anxiety: suddenly that, and in the house there is buckwheat and potatoes.
2. Courier services
Grocery stores were allowed not to close; other shopping facilities were less fortunate. They, as well as public catering establishments, are saved by courier services that take delivery on themselves. If you leave the house (exclusively on business, of course), you can see how many people in the street are in branded clothes. They all carry something to someone. So the increase in revenue and the staff of courier services is a natural consequence of quarantine measures.
3. Online education
Learning through the Internet is a trend of recent years. It’s convenient when you don’t need to go to an English tutor through the whole city or you can get a profession sitting on your own couch. The web has many courses on any subject - from painting to physics. The pandemic added to the number of online students those who decided to learn something from boredom or who risk losing their profession in a crisis.
4. IT area
Prior to the advent of coronavirus, this industry did not complain about stagnation, but the pandemic gave it new growth points. One of them is tools for business. Due to restrictive measures, conservative spheres, which slowly and reluctantly went online, were forced to accelerate. Someone met a pandemic with outdated, barely working sites, while someone didn’t have a debug channel at all. All this required immediate intervention. This is where IT services came in handy.
5. Home fitness products
The pandemic dispersed into the apartments and lovers of fitness equipment, and runners, and people involved in horizontal bars. All of them had to decide the issue of training at home. Therefore, the demand for compact exercise machines, elastic bands and expanders, weights and dumbbells has grown.
Interest in online training has increased. If for fitness centers this is an attempt to upgrade the brand and save at least some kind of income, then for those who initially relied on it, this is a great opportunity for growth.
6. Juridic services
The demand for legal assistance does not come from a good life. Unfortunately, the pandemic creates all the conditions to throw people’s problems. We have to solve issues related to the closure of the business, job cuts, job loss, the use of credit and other banking products.
7. Intimate goods
On the one hand, the self-isolation regime closed access to new acquaintances and non-binding sex, and even loners would like to be released in a stressful situation. On the other hand, the couples were locked together.
