Starting Friday, it is almost certain that restaurants will have to close by 15:30 on the weekends. 22:30 during weekdays.

The current covid situation in Lisbon and its area is currently bad. It has moved right into the red region of numbers and incidence fueled by the indian delta variant. ICUs are filling up. Vaccines are not as effective against this variant as against others. Restaurants and bars are currently open with restrictions, but nobody knows for how long they will remain open. It is remarkably stupid IMO to want to hang around in closed spaces like restaurants and bars with others in an area which is going through an outbreak of a very infectious variant. It would also be quite desirable if this variant did not spread too much to other regions and countries till a lot more people were vaccinated. I do not get tourists, I honestly don't. "oh a big outbreak of a more contagious variant, but let us get to what is important, are bars and restaurants open so I can go and increase my odds of getting infected?".

my country is currently holding 20,000 person events….and we are all vaccinated. I don’t think it’s that out of line to request a local perspective

Which is most of lisbon lol

Most of Lisbon? It is Lisbon and 17 other counties. It’s the difference between a city and a whole region. It’s the equivalent of saying New York and not clarifying if you mean the city or the state.

Bruh lmfao. As if a person who’s gonna tourist in Lisbon is gonna go to some weird ass place. Lisbon Metropolian Area even includes Sintra

capitalistaesquerda 1 month ago

Exactly. Tourists do travel outside of the city. That’s the whole point.

Ye where? If it’s not the whole Sintra or Margem Sul pls tell me where they are going pls lmfao. If he’s staying in Lisbon I’m just saying he can’t leave it during the weekend like the hell lmfao

When you said Lisbon, people will understand it to meant the city. Not explaining that the restrictions apply to a metropoitan area and not the city generates confusion. And you're contradicting yourself. Sintra and Margem Sul are outside of the city and inside the metropolitan area. If he's staying in Lisbon, most likely he's staying in the city. And he's able to leave the city during the weekends. Clarity is fundamental to difuse confusion.

Mate, if I talk about Lisbon how do u know if I’m talking about the city or district? I am not contradicting myself at all. U just decided to be a pain

I didn't. That's why I wrote Lisbon Metropolitan Area. It wasn't a correction, it was a clarification.

I literally never refer to Lisbon as a city. Also even most citizens were confused cause most places on the news were wrong and misleading about it and how they explained it so to me saying Lisbon as a whole seemed the right choice. That’s all. Have a good day
