Thank you for posting this information. I am seeing many articles saying there is support out there from SS for my employees, banks and Turismo de Portugal but I just can't seem to find anywhere to actually apply for help for my Unipessoal LDA.

It’s great, although essential, that businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic are being helped by the government.

But what about the workers?

I cannot find any information on what help the Portuguese government is offering to the many thousands of restaurant, hotel and bar workers, amongst many others, who are now out of work and being told to stay at home.
