Dear students,

We would like to inform you that, according to the decision announced by the Greek government, all organized trips within Greece have been suspended.

Given that every day new COVID-19  incidents are being recorded, we strongly recommend to refrain from traveling within as well as out of Greece so to guard yourself from getting in contact with the virus.

In case you are experiencing any of the symptoms, you should not go to your doctor or to the emergency room, to avoid any potential contamination, but you are kidnly asked to call the Greek National Public Health Organization at +30 2105212054 and +30 210 5212000 so they can evaluate if your condition requires further investigation regarding the Covid-19.

Also, according to the latest announcement issued by the Rectorate of Aristotle University, all services will be conducted by phone or electronic means (e.g. email); please note that for your safety, for now, we will not be accepting students in person at the office.
