The announcement was made on Saturday by the Prime Minister that all municipalities with more than 240 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants, in the past 14 days, will be subject to more restrictive measures to combat the pandemic.

Nationally, 121 municipalities were subject to the straighter measures; São Brás de Alportel is the only one of the Algarve’s 16 counties to be on the list.
