And here we are, mask wearing will be mandatory on the streets of Portugal.

Imagine someone predicting this one year ago.

@hugo Do you also have a curfew? And how long is that supposed to last?
As of social mask wearing strategies i just think it all depends on how much individuals take care of trying not to infect anyone else, while not knowing if they are infective, no?
If many are careless, then governments might have no other option.

@jayrope currently it depends on the region, different regions have different rules. On my region we cannot be out of the house after 11PM until 5AM unless you have a valid reason (work, etc).

I am personally ok with the mask, just surprised how fast things can change. If someone had said to me a year ago that this would happen, I would not believe them :)

@hugo Oh yes, well, a year ago we weren't even watching Wuhan on the news. there wasn't any - obvious - #Covid19 reports. My question was rather for how long the government has announced your curfew? The Spanish government has put this up until May 2021, which seems surreal, because that ignores any possible improvement in the meantime right away.. And therefore many locals have a feeling of possible dictatorship coming back to #Spain. How is that in #Portugal? Thank you!


@jayrope @hugo that's already happening in – Orban isn't doing much in the way of covid policies and a lot towards passing covid-unrelated far-right laws.
And he has not relinquished his absolute powers.
