Restaurant, Nightlife, and Events
In Lisbon, businesses, including restaurants and shops, will be open, but with somewhat reduced capacities, modified hours, additional cleaning protocols, and some new regulations. Certain events, gatherings, or activities may be on hold during your semester, but we think you’ll find life in Lisbon looking much like a typical semester. You can count on more details, resources, and recommendations for connecting with local community groups, teams, and clubs, after your arrival.
In Portugal, mask-wearing has become commonplace; masks are required almost everywhere (e.g., on public transportation, grocery stores, and bars/restaurants). As in the U.S., some locals wear a mask at all times in public, while others wear them only when required.
