The alert situation will therefore be extended from 00:00 on the 1st of June until 23:59 on the 30th of the same month.

The executive, led by social democrat Miguel Albuquerque, also stated that he has decided to “keep unchanged” the measures to control the pandemic in force, namely the mandatory use of a mask in health units, homes, pharmacies and other establishments, as well as on public transport.

The mask continues to be mandatory also for people infected with Covid-19, in all circumstances, whenever they are out of their place of isolation until the tenth day after the date of onset of symptoms or positive test.
