Consider that much of the equipment used in the health régime orginates from China. Good business, wasn't it, sending us their diseases and then making us pay them for the cure. (spouting more rubbish you stupid old fool) i'm sure people will agree with you the same trolls that sent english players filth

"Charming! Current restrictions extended until 27 July."

Does anyone know what current restrictions exactly are? They keep changing with exceptions and exceptions of exceptions so I can't really tell what is flavour of the day any more.

This is the current state of play in Albufeira and most of the rest of the Algarve, which are all classified as very high risk, meaning that about 1% of the population is likely to be infected. Taken from local media, translated from the official annnouncements :

Municipalities of very high risk are:

  • Bound by the 11pm – 5am curfew
  • Must enforce remote working when business functions permit
  • Must close restaurants and cafés by 10.30pm (inside tables with a maximum of four people, terraces with six
  • Must bring any cultural shows to a close by 10.30pm
  • Must limit sports to those considered low and medium risk
  • Must close shops by 9pm during the week. At weekends non-food shops must close by 3.30pm; food shops by 7pm
Yesterday it was announced that the waterparks can re-open as of today.

Rules about wearing masks anywhere indoors, in buses and taxis, while walking along the beach etc are unchanged.

Eating inside a restaurant at weekends is permitted only if you have an EU Digital health certificate or are willing to pay for test and show the results. It is OK to eat inside during the week without all that fuss or at any time sitting outside, so obviously those in charge know something we cannot understand.

Furthermore it is required that you show your EU certificate or negative test result when checking into to an hotel or privately rented apartment.

But, as we have come to know this past few weeks, things can and do change at any tme and almost without notice.

The Albufeira Safe website now has a useful section about rules during covid, this might be good for people looking to come out to PT.

Early closing law rescinded as of this Sunday coming, places can open until 02.00h. Other restrictions remain in place for at least another month, including enforced closure of night-clubs and 'entertainment' bars i.e. those that do not have a table service licence.

Obviously curfew law also rescinded.

Health pass required for dining inside restaurant Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Not required for other nights nor if sitting outside, as the virus does not work on those days.

Numbers allowed in taxis etc still limited.

Those in charge reckon all social restrictions will be removed by early October. Just in time for the winter influenza season.

Two months in the future seems to be the sweet spot to promise anything that may or may not happen, world wide.

I am reminded of a character in a long ago kid's TV programme, Toytown.  It had a character called Mr. Growser whose regular sayings were "It's disgrrrrraceful" and "It ought not to be allowed".

It is no coincidence that in no known language does the phrase 'As pretty as an Airport' appear. Douglas Adams

No-one can sit next to the driver and in theory ony 2 of the 3 back seats can be occupied. That didn't stop three if us being on the back seat to get back home after Euro 2020 final.

In larger vehicles capacity is limited to 2/3rds, so maximum four in a six seater, six in a nine seater etc. Children are counted as one passenger, so a family of four needs either a six seater (of which there are few) or two normal sized cars.
