The GNR Setúbal Territorial Command said in a statement that the party was closed by military personnel from the Territorial Detachment of Palmela.

“Following a complaint that a party was being held on rented property, the Guard military went to the site after verifying that the attendees were not only an unauthorized event, but were not using the mask or socializing guaranteed removal,” it says in the declaration.

The GNR recalls that “complying with the measures imposed by the state of emergency related to the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic” is “of fundamental importance in order to contain the spread of the virus”.
