Covid-19 cases have not decreased in the port of Mazatlan

The municipal Secretary of Economic Development, Tourism and Fisheries clarified that it is difficult to be able to talk about dates to re-open businesses or open beaches because there are still no conditions; doing so would only increase contagion.

We are proposing a reactivation protocol, but it is risky to talk about dates, the issue here is that the restart of operations will be based on the intensity of contagion in our municipality, and according to how the pandemic has behaved in Mazatlán we could still be in red light 

David González Torrentera.

González Torrentera pointed out that a protocol was proposed so that non-essential activities can begin to operate. But it will be until the traffic light of the Ministry of Health turns orange; And for that, it is of utmost importance that the population continues to stay at home.

I agree that we all want the economy to be reactivated, I agree that we all want to be able to get out, but you have to be responsible and collaborate, cooperate because this is a time for society to unite 

David González Torrentera.

The municipal official maintained that until now in Mazatlan only essential activities will continue to operate because if all businesses are opened early, there is a risk of saturating the local health system.


Until the Traffic Light of the Ministry of Health marks Mazatlán with orange color, then it is possible to resume commercial activities.
