Restrictions return to save Chrismas

Lighter restrictions to return

JM leads with a forecast that restrictions will be reintroduced

As first reported here yesterday, JM leads with a report that restrictions will be re-imposed in an attempt to save Christmas in Madeira. They speculate that these will include: mandatory masks; teleworking in the public service; accelerate third dose of vaccine; more inspection in nightlife; ‘squeeze’ for the unvaccinated; limitations on home visits.

The aggravation of the epidemiological situation in Madeira will force the Government to slow down in the decontamination, re-implementing some sanitary control measures that JM describes in this morning’s edition, which are less restrictive than in the past. 

Regional President Miguel Albuquerque will explain the changes today, at a press conference scheduled for 17:00. A final decision on Market Night is not expected until the end of the month
