“Derived from the change to the orange of the state epidemiological traffic light, authorities of the three orders of government continue with the supervision work, and establishments and businesses were exhorted to respect the 30 percent capacity allowed, as well as the implementation of sanitary measures such as sanitation of the place, mandatory use of face mask and the application of antibacterial gel ”, he agreed.
He added that the three levels of government will continue to urge compliance with these measures permanently until reaching the green color.
