Greece Implements Measures for Civil Servants During Heatwave:

The Interior Ministry has issued a circular detailing how civil services in Greece will operate during an upcoming heatwave, forecasted from Tuesday to Thursday by the National Meteorological Service. Following discussions with the General Secretariat of Civil Protection, it was decided that civil servants who are part of vulnerable groups may work from home. If remote work is not feasible, they may be granted special permission to stay home, provided they can prove their need through employer records or a workplace-affiliated doctor's note.

For other civil servants, remote work is also an option. If this is not possible, flexible arrival and departure times are recommended, particularly for those with outdoor duties. It is advised to avoid working during the peak heatwave hours of 12:00 to 17:00. Citizen services should reschedule appointments for these days while maintaining full operational capacity.
