MERIDA Yucatan (Times Media Mexico) – The state government of Yucatan, and governor Mauricio Vila informed that starting today, Friday, April 10, and until April 30, the “ley seca” -dry law- will be applied in Yucatan, as part of the measures taken by the state of emergency as a result of the Covid-2019 pandemic.
Decree 208/2020 issued by the Executive Branch and published in the State Official Gazette, informs of the prohibition of the sale of alcoholic beverages in the state until April 30.
