New Rules into force to combat Covid-19 in Portutal. Confinement returns and preventive measures are mandatory in 19 Parishes. Failing to comply will be fined up to 5,000 Euros.

Fines have already come into force for those who do not comply with the rules imposed by the DGS to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was from 00:00 on this Saturday that fines between 100 and 500 euros began to be imposed on individuals and between 1000 and 5000 euros on companies and groups that violate the rules of physical distance, use of a mask in closed spaces, capacity, schedules, hygiene, limits on gatherings and prohibition of consumption and / or sale of alcohol on public roads. The announcement was made this Thursday by the Prime Minister, António Costa, at the end of the meeting of the Council of Ministers.

The sanctioning framework was approved in order to regulate the lifting of confinement in most of the country and its transition to alertness, the lowest level of exception, and to curb the number of new positive cases of Covid-19, especially in 19 parishes in the Lisbon region, where the state of calamity will be maintained. “More freedom implies more responsibility and a heavier pulse for the security forces,” maintained Costa, revealing that “there will be police reinforcement on the streets”.

The country is currently divided into three pandemic speeds: alertness, contingency and calamity. 19 parishes in the Metropolitan Area of ​​Lisbon returned to the state of calamity after a significant increase in these cases.
