BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY
It goes without saying that it has been a hard time, but we are happy to start being able to see an (eventual) end to the lockdown.
We are aware that as long as there won’t be a treatment and/or a vaccin, it will be hard to come back to what was life before the Covid-19.
It is then our job to make sure that we follow from up close all the new regulations put in place by the government and the DGS (Direção-Geral da Saúde) in order to start working again and welcome you in Porto “Clean and Safe” as soon as possible.
In Portugal, they created a label called “Clean and Safe”. This means that businesses related to the tourism industry are complying to the Health Measures from Portugal by providing a protocol of safety measures to Turismo de Portugal. If the protocol is approved, you are Clean and Safe and can welcome customers. This ensures you that every business that received this label will be able to provide their services in a safe environment.
Under, you will find all the measures from Portours that apply from now on and for an underterminated period of time.
