Worsening of the pandemic forces new restrictive measures

Return of border control, return of digital certificate requirement for access to restaurants, mandatory mask at major events (soccer games, for example) and commercial spaces, reinforcement of testing needs, reinforcement of the vaccination operation – and reinforced recommendation to return from telecommuting.

Given the increase in the numbers of the covid-19 pandemic, the Council of Ministers will announce this Thursday new mitigation measures. This Wednesday, the prime minister completed the round of meetings with the parliamentary parties that he had started on Tuesday.

Who spoke of the return of border control was the assistant secretary general of the PS, José Luís Carneiro, after meeting with António Costa.

“Recourse to telework for the purposes of protection and family support, if deemed necessary, is certainly one of the resources that we should have at hand.”

It is very important that we are all aware of our individual and collective responsibility, and that we are prepared for reinforcement measures, namely in relation to the use of a mask, testing in access to closed spaces and interior spaces, the need to make a vaccination certificate and testing a regular procedure in our lives and also to be prepared for the need to reinforce the entrances and exits of the country, therefore, of border control.”

According to the socialist, this issue of borders is linked to the fact that Portugal is “a country open to the world”, which makes it exposed “to the risks that come from regions where vaccination has not yet reached levels” as that of the country.
