The government will continue to make teleworking mandatory in all municipalities in Portugal until 13 June, coinciding with the extension of the state of calamity.

"The rules currently in force by Resolution of the Council of Ministers are extended for another two weeks," said an official source from the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Security.

Among these rules is the requirement that the telework regime must be adopted whenever the functions allow it.

The Council of Ministers approved a resolution that extends the state of calamity throughout the mainland until 23:59 of 13 June, 2021.

Until 13 June the rules in force since mid-January, when the second general lockdown was decreed, will remain in place in relation to remote working.
