(I finally photographed these poppies on the road to Panormos , in Loutsa.
I had seen them several times in the last few days but I never stopped the car. Yesterday I made the decision to stop because I also saw that with one good wind gust this bouquet of poppies would be gone forever)

Walking up to my office this morning I found almost all shops and businesses open. There were even a couple of guys who had taken chairs and stools outside and were arguing loudly about current affairs. From Bisque, Skopelos Gi/Σκοπελος Γη, the little coffee shop, Sofia the hairdresser, the bakery, peparithos and Saintukeri we wish you a good day wherever you are.

At the moment there are various European countries, Greece is amongst them, who are talking about how the travel ban should be lifted and under which circumstances. Greece relies heavily on incoming tourism and many businesses are waiting for foreign customers this summer. Greece will also launch a plan to support Greeks who want to holiday in Greece.
This is what Greece proposes and what the Greek travel pages have written about it: Greece Proposes EU-wide 72-hour Pre-travel Covid-19 Test

Correction

I have made a mistake in assuming that all banks take a commission if you withdraw money from their ATM. It doesn’t depend on the ATM of the bank that you use but on the bank that you withdraw the money from. I am sorry if I caused confusion. So if you have your National Bank of Greece card and you withdraw money from a ATM of the National Bank of Greece you will not be charged. If you use another card from another bank there you can be charged. It depends on the bank. Sorry again.
