COVID-19 security measures in Portugal
Now that the lockdown due to the coronavirus in Portugal has ended, we see the country reopening step by step according to the master plan drawn up by the Portuguese government. Several airlines, in Belgium and the Netherlands as well as in other countries, have already announced that they will be flying back to Portugal from mid-June or early July, meaning that Portugal is ready just in time to receive summer guests. In preparation for your own visit to Portugal, it is good to know what the rules are in Portugal in public areas, such as supermarkets and restaurants, but also when you use public transport or when you are going to visit a property. What can you expect and what is expected of you?
Like any other country, Portugal also has some basic rules including "stay at home if you are unwell or have a fever or tightness", sneezing and coughing in your elbow and avoid physical contact with others. In addition to these basic rules, there are several additional measures specifically chosen by the Portuguese government to maintain the low number of infections that Portugal has. The country has been acclaimed around the world for acting accurately at the beginning of this pandemic, and of course the Portuguese government and all Portuguese residents are committed to maintaining those low numbers.
