The Mayor of Lagoa, Luís Encarnação, reacted to this result with pride for the behaviour of his citizens, to whom he says he owes the relative control of the pandemic situation in the municipality. “We are on the right track, but it is still necessary not to lower our guard. In this festive period, we must continue to be aware and responsible”, said.

The mayor of Lagoa reinforced, however, the call for the Christmas and New Year celebrations to be held with respect for the recommendations of the responsible authorities, namely the General Directorate of Health (DGS).
