Portugal orders mandatory work from home and shut all recreational activities

Published on : Wednesday, December 22, 2021

Portugal announced new restrictions over Christmas and the New Year. Working from home will become mandatory and bars and discotheques will be shut from Saturday.

People will need to test negative for the virus to access cinemas, theatres, sports events, weddings and baptisms until at least 9 January. On Christmas and New Year’s, people will need a negative test result to access restaurants and public celebrations.

On New Year’s Eve, no more than 10 people can gather in the street, and drinking alcohol outdoors will be prohibited.

This comes despite Portugal’s high vaccination rate with around 86% of its population fully vaccinated against the virus.

Portugal reintroduced tighter pandemic restrictions on December 1 to contain a new surge in infections.

The face masks once again became mandatory and the country tightened control of its borders.

A digital certificate proving vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 is required to access restaurants, cinemas and hotels.
