Wearing masks in public will be compulsory at all times on the popular Portuguese island of Madeira from Aug. 1, the local government announced on Tuesday, making it the first region in the country to adopt such a measure against COVID-19

Madeira has managed to keep its tally of coronavirus cases low since the pandemic started. It has reported 105 infections, with no new cases since Saturday.

At last a government that considers its population more important than financial gain. To those who want to stay away.....Stay away and we'll stay safe.

I think its a great idea during a PANDEMIC. It shows how some areas of the world care about lives more than money. Madeira is the paradise of the world.

I hope they know that they can write off tourism this way. I saw it already coming and warned all of my friends to avoid the island. Maybe Algarve should follow, because then Portugal can close down their tourism business completely.
