Covid restrictions in place until at least April 18 in Portugal

Written By Lara Silva

As predicted, the current covid restrictions in Portugal remain in place until at least April 18 as the state of alert was extended on Wednesday through a resolution by the Council of Ministers. The state of alert was meant to end on March 30 and is the lowest level response to situations under the law.

This means that the current covid restrictions will not be altered for the time being. This includes mandatory use of face masks in interior spaces, health service locations, and public transport. Those without a booster shot for the Covid-19 vaccine must test negative to visit nursing homes, hospitals, and health centers.

The “open house” strategy for vaccination is still in place. Those over 18 without a COVID-19 booster, those over 12 without the first COVID-19 dose, and those over 50 without a booster against the flu can get vaccinated without an appointment.
