Changes the measures applicable to certain municipalities under the calamity situation
Resolution of the Council of Ministers No. 86-A/2021
Summary: Changes the measures applicable to certain municipalities in the context of the disaster situation.
The COVID-19 disease pandemic is in a growing phase, associated with the presence and proliferation of variants of concern, with an increase in incidence, as well as in the number of infected and hospitalized patients.
In this sense, the adoption of new mitigation and containment measures is justified, as well as the reinforcement of the need to maintain all the precautions that have accompanied us since the beginning of this pandemic.
Following the weekly review of the territorial scope of the COVID-19 disease containment and mitigation measures, it is determined that the following municipalities are considered “high risk municipalities” for the purposes of applicability of those measures until the next review: Alcochete, Alenquer , Arruda dos Vinhos, Avis, Braga, Castelo de Vide, Faro, Grândola, Lagoa, Lagos, Montijo, Odemira, Palmela, Paredes de Coura, Portimão, Porto, Rio Maior, Santarém, São Brás de Alportel, Sardoal, Setúbal, Silves , Sines, Sousel, Torres Vedras and Vila Franca de Xira.
In turn, in addition to the municipalities of Albufeira, Lisbon and Sesimbra – to which the measures relating to ‘very high risk municipalities’ continue to apply, as was the case last week – it happens that, given the verification of two assessments above of the 240 cases per 100 thousand inhabitants, the municipalities of Almada, Amadora, Barreiro, Cascais, Constância, Loulé, Loures, Mafra, Mira, Moita, Odivelas, Oeiras, Olhão, Seixal, Sintra and Sobral de Monte Agraço are included measures concerning ‘very high risk municipalities’.
In addition to the weekly review of the territorial scope of the COVID-19 disease containment and mitigation measures, considering the aggravated epidemiological situation in municipalities that are subject to the rules of “high risk” and “very high risk”, citizens who are there must refrain from circulating on public spaces and streets, as well as on private spaces and roads similar to public roads, and remain in their respective homes, every day of the week between 23:00 h. at 05:00 h.
