Portugal on Monday proceeded to the third stage of deconfinement, or easing of COVID-19 lockdown measures, with the gradual reopening of services and other activities in municipalities with a relatively low COVID-19 incidence rate.
Axar.az reports that in most of the country, schools resumed in-person education and stores, shopping centers and restaurants reopened with occupancy restrictions and in-store health and safety measures.
In the affected municipalities, sports and physical activities for groups of up to six people are now also allowed. Weddings and religious services are also allowed, but limited to 25 percent of the venue's total capacity.
Six municipalities will not advance to this third stage of deconfinement as they each reported 120 new coronavirus cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the past 14 days.
