MÉRIDA, YUCATAN (September 10, 2020).- The State Congress approved a Point of Agreement for the Legislature to exhort the 106 municipalities of the state to take into account the prevention measures against Covid-19, and avoid holding mass events for national independence celebrations, historical representations, parades, popular dances, and/or kermesse.

The deputy promoting, Rosa Adriana Díaz Lizama, stated that the priority is to guarantee health.
