At a press conference, after the meeting of the Council of Ministers, in Lisbon, the Minister of State and Presidency, Mariana Vieira da Silva, said that in high or very high risk councils there will be a restriction on circulation on public roads "from 11:00 pm until 05:00 am”, explaining that the measure aims to reduce crowds and “there is no exception” related to the presentation of a negative covid-19 test or digital vaccination certificate.
The Government's intention is for the measure to enter into force as soon as possible, saying that this could happen as of 2 July.
