Portugal extends the rules for Covid! What is predicted for the fall?

Portugal has extended its COVID rules until the end of August, but remains open to all travelers.

Since July, the country has welcomed visitors regardless of their vaccination status, without having to take a test or fill out any forms.

However, a state of emergency is still in place, which the Portuguese Council of Ministers has just extended until August 31. The new rules state that all people over the age of 10 must wear face masks on public transport and when traveling by taxi or other means of transport.

Minister Mariana Vieira da Silva even warned that "additional measures" could be introduced in the fall if the pandemic worsens.
