Updated measures to contain COVID-19 in Portugal

The Portuguese Government Resolution 25-A/2022, published on February 18, 2022, updated some of the measures implemented to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2 infection in the population.

Although this update does not significantly change what is defined in the U.Porto Contingency Plan, we summarize the main measures now in effect:

  1. There is no longer occupancy limits in all public spaces;
  2. Those who have had contact with anyone infected with SARS-CoV-2 are no longer obliged to confinement;
  3. Working from home is no longer recommended;
  4. It is no longer allowed to take body temperature measurements to workers, students and visitors, for the purposes of access and stay at the U.Porto.

However, the academic community must:

  • Maintain individual risk prevention measures, such as respiratory protection and measures, the use of isolated masks and avoid large gatherings of people;
  • Assure the ventilation of spaces and the hygiene of surfaces, as defined in the U.Porto Contingency Plan;
  • Whenever symptoms related to the infection and/or doubts arise about the possibility of having contracted the SARS-CoV-2 infection, refrain from traveling to the U.Porto before performing a diagnostic test;
  • Consider vaccinating against COVID-19, according to the scheme defined by the Portuguese Health Authorities.
