Prohibition of circulation throughout Easter Monday

The ban on movement between municipalities will extend until 23.59 hours of the next Monday, April 5th. Then, and at least for the next 15 days, the ban ends.

The confusion ensued with the release of some news indicating that the ban on movement outside the municipality of residence, in force since last Friday, lasted until 5 am on April 5. But, according to information conveyed today by António Costa during the communication to the country, and later confirmed to the JN by the Prime Minister’s office, the ban is in effect until 23.59 hours on Monday.

The same information had already been confirmed this week by the Minister of the Presidency, Mariana Vieira da Silva, and appears in the decree-law for the renewal of the state of emergency dated March 28.

In other words, during the day when the second phase of the deconflation plan begins, with the reopening of schools of the 2nd and 3rd cycles, terraces, fairs, markets and stores up to 200 m2 with a door to the street, it is it is forbidden to leave the municipality of residence.

On April 6, the ban on movement between counties ends, at least for the next 15 days. “In the next fortnight, there is no provision for a ban on movement between municipalities, either at weekdays or at weekends,” said António Costa this Thursday.
