As of today, April 22, 2022, more than two years after the Covid-19 pandemic began, Portugal no longer requires the use of masks… well, sort of.

No more masks in bars, shops, restaurants, outdoor gatherings — hooray!

But masks are still required in healthcare establishments, residential or foster care facilities for vulnerable populations or elderly people, and transport — and in addition to public transit, that also includes airplanes, taxis, and Uber and other ride-hailing vehicles, according to Diário da República, the Portugal government’s official publication.

But for the love of freedom and seeing faces again, please wear a mask if you develop symptoms, yeah?
