Portugal to reopen beaches next month

Published on : Saturday, May 16, 2020

On Friday, Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa announced that beaches across Portugal are set to reopen starting June 6. The government has arranged for an app that can be downloaded by the public and can help to inform them if their choice of beach is already full or has space for more people to avail.

President Costa said in his statement that police will constantly monitor the beaches upon reopening. He urged people to abide by social distancing measures while availing of the beaches. He said that beaches are places of leisure and everyone should keep a check on themselves to continue enjoying the natural bounties.

Individuals and groups have been asked to maintain a distance of 1.5 meters between themselves while availing of the beach. Beach sports of two or more people will not be allowed. Visitors are allowed to book deck-chairs only for the morning or afternoon. The opening will probably be a part of the government’s second phase of a sector-by-sector plan to reopen the economy set to begin on Monday.

Restaurants, museums, and coffee shops will be allowed to reopen at reduced capacity. Schools will also resume activities for selected year groups. The country has already allowed small shops to open as it lifted travel restrictions on May 4. The app to trace beach availability has been developed by the Portuguese Agency for the Environment.

The app will use real-time mobile phone data and numbers submitted by beach businesses to establish how many people are present on the beaches at any given time. The government is also working with phone operators to collect data to examine the manner of gathering alongside recording the numbers.
