February 16th won't be a day off this year due to lockdown measures

The Government will this year not be allowing a day off for carnival Tuesday, which falls on February 16th, because the country is in lockdown. The lockdown due to the covid-19 pandemic means no public festivities, and optional bank holidays are usually conceded to allow people to participate in festivities and celebrations. Next week, the State of Emergency in Portugal is due to be renewed for another 15 days, extending until March 1st.
