One assumes their parents either didn't know or didn't care what they were doing.

Albufeira beach was fairly busy yesterday I was told.

Just got back from second AZ jab. Got there 8.15 - stood in queue for almost 5 hours to get in building  ,chaos doesn't begin to express my frustration. They brought the second jab forward a month but no extra rescources to cover the extra people attending. Those with appts went through slowly but everyone else  had to wait - the queue stretching out onto main road
HOPELESS

Perry -  those with appointments go in a separate queue. IF you had AZ you can go at 8 weeks not 12 - it is these people that are being made to wait if you go early. I want to go to UK asap to see family hence I waited otherwise would have left it

This is in Albufeira -next to LIDL
Last time I was in that building it was the Wine Festival a couple of years ago - don't know when /if that will happen again

Just confirmed by the UK government.

Those who have had both doses of a Covid vaccine can avoid having to isolate when returning from Amber list countries from 19th July. Negative tests are still required though.

Similar to the requirement for travel in the opposite direction.

It seems it is now only possible to transmit the contagion after 7pm on Fridays and over the weekend and only when inside a restaurant.  The new rules described in this article apply to Albufeira and as from today. The good news is that, providing you have all the necessary paperwork in order, you may go inside a restaurant on a Friday, Saturday  or Sunday night. Who is going to enforce all this I wonder? Will squads of police be visiting restaurants to check on everyone?

You don't need the paperwork to be able to sit outside.


BTW waterparks have been closed down by government order, except for Zoomarine's educational areas. This ruling is however being challenged in the courts.

Again I think its aimed to stop the Portuguese people coming down for the weekend from the northern hotspots.

The whole country is now at least at high risk level according to the statisticians.
Another new law is that anyone staying in an hotel, guest house or private rental must show either the European Digitial Certificate or a negative test taken no later than 48 hours before arrival.

That should prove interesting as to enforcement, especially at the smaller places where a lot use a remote checkin system with keyboxes.

Mentioned to me yesterday, what happens if you are in restaurant at 645pm on a Friday. Do you have to show your paperwork at 7pm, or be chucked out  before you have finisihed your dinner?

I am looking forward to similar measures being applied when the winter 'flu begins.  We must keep everyone safe, all the time, with no risk to individuals or society as a whole.

In fairness 4 million + dead in a little over a year is a sight more serious than the flu, like by a factor of 10 and outside of vaccines that's with every measure we can take almost everywhere.

Are digital passes or negative test to be applied if you want sit inside a bar? Can you go inside the bar to order drinks without a pass? Can you use the toilets without a pass?
