"The Government understands that all people who have the booster dose will no longer have to test" to have access to various sites or activities, announced António Costa at the end of the Council of Ministers.
According to the Prime Minister, this is "an incentive" to people who are able to access the booster dose.
According to the new rules approved in the Council of Ministers to "control the pandemic", is mandatory negative test for those who do not have the booster dose of the vaccine to make visits to nursing homes and patients admitted to hospitals.
For access to major events, events without assigned seats or in makeshift venues and sports venues, people who have had a booster dose more than 14 days ago are also exempt from testing.
In turn, the digital certificate is mandatory to enter restaurants, tourist establishments and local accommodation, cultural shows, events with assigned seating and gyms.
