Firstly please be sure to wear a face mask when entering shops, commercial complexes, public buildings and all forms of public transport.
This is mandatory for everyone above the age of 10.
Social distancing varies in many countries, but here it is 2 metres apart – respect floor markings and direction signs in shops especially on entry and queuing at cash points.
It is important to remember that maximum group size is 20 people (except Lisbon Metropolitan area -10). This also applies to private parties.
One of the joys is eating out, but please remember to wear a mask on entry and moving around inside. Do not move tables around and avoid gathering in large groups on terraces without masks.
Drinking alcohol in street/public areas prohibited and frequently enforced.
Gel is available at most stores, shopping centres, transport terminals etc. Please use it especially before and after using supermarket trolleys and adopt hygiene rules.
Lastly please follow the instructions of store keepers and restaurant staff, as they are there to help you.
We all have a responsibility to keep Portugal safe. By respecting the rules cases will continue to decrease and normality will return sooner rather than later.
