As lockdown ease restrictions, cinemas, theatres, shopping malls, gyms and other cultural venues are currently getting on track. However, only 20 people are allowed to gather in such places whereas restaurants having opened since May 18 keep their capacity of about 50%, still.

Gyms will experience a drastic cut of their normal activities. Machines usage will only be of about 50% and showers are forbidden. People can enjoy 1 hour per day inside the gym while respecting social distancing of 4 sq metres.

Similarly, cinemas and theatres are opening as well as complying with restrictive measures. Beside sanitizing requirements, spectators must keep wearing masks and seat separately from each other unless your neighbour belongs to the same houseold of yours. 

Portugal is currently entering the ‘third phase’ of lockdown although there no yet provisions about bars, disco and outdoor events reopening. As long as there is no official provision it’s still assumed to revive such activities from September onwards.
