Portugal Lifts Restrictions: No More Mandatory Digital Certificates, Negative Tests, Capacity Limits, Confinement for Contacts at Risk

The new measures are expected to go into effect within days.

The Portuguese government is now discussing doing away with mask mandates as well.

The Portuguese government decided on Thursday, February 17, to lift many of the more onerous Covid-19 restrictions.

For one, there is no more requirement to present a digital certificate or negative test to enter restaurants, bars, event venues, and other commercial establishments, although the certificate will still be necessary at the border.

Capacity limits on public spaces has also been lifted.

Masks, however, are still required inside public spaces, including public transport, as per previous rules.

You can read the new rules, in Portuguese, on the government’s COVID website here.
