The Directorate General of Health has reviewed the recommendations for the attendance of the public in sports stadiums and decided to increase the occupancy of these places from 33 to 50% of the maximum capacity.
The DGS explains the decision based on new data brought by the pandemic in recent weeks, including the excellent rate of vaccination in Portugal.
Despite this expansion of public coverage in each of the sports venues, the General Directorate of Sports maintains reservations and extreme caution to be observed in all forms of presence related to events of this nature.
“Thus, the capacity reference for the audience in single-seat seats is 50%, except for the first row indicated in the previous figure,” it can be read in point 16 of the guidance document revealed by the DGD on Thursday.
The body led by Graça Freitas recalls that a face mask is still mandatory and urges those attending sports grounds to pay special attention to smokers. But not only, as evidenced by point 23.
«During the event, it is recommended that there is no place to eat or drink (with appropriate exceptions related to sanitary conditions). Water needs can be provided when necessary, as long as each person comes with their own container of liquid, for individual use. Sports field assistants should pay special attention to this behavior.”
