The Cascais City Council announced that it will lift restrictions on access to the sea wall (Cascais-Carcavelos), beaches and parks in the municipality as of 6 pm on Tuesday, February 23.
The municipality, in a statement on the official website, justifies the decision with the “decrease in the number of cases of covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants” which thus guarantees the municipality a “two-level descent, abandoning the Extremely and Very High Risk level passing to be part of the group of municipalities with a high risk level ”. The health and safety authorities in the municipality gave a positive opinion to this update.
This reopening still has some rules. Only “physical activity and the training of individual outdoor sports are allowed, as well as all professional and equivalent training and competitive activities, without an audience and in compliance with the guidelines of the DGS, under the terms of the law”. The use of a mask remains mandatory, as well as the social distance, still fixed at two meters. Agglomerations are prohibited, as well as being on the beach. The municipality also asks for “the fulfillment of the directions of circulation”.
