Municipal Police urge tourists to wear face masks in Downtown Mérida

by Yucatan Times

Mérida, Yucatán, (November 25, 2021).- After some images of foreign tourists in the historic center not wearing a mouth guard or face mask went viral, the municipal police commander Mario Arturo Romero Escalante said that they will continue to urge tourists to wear this protection tool against the pandemic due to coronavirus.

He pointed out that they cannot force visitors to use it, since they have the right not to do so, however, he insists on inviting them to use it, in addition to the fact that in the establishments they will need to carry it in a mandatory way to enter.

He added that the cases are frequent, so they are considering having masks on hand again to give them to all those who are not using them.

“They are urged to do it, in fact, one of the things that we are trying to do again is to try to provide them, if we have some cases but it is not the most common either”.

He recalled that the influx of tourists this holiday season increases, and has been very nourished since the Tianguis Turístico, so we have to be on the lookout for exhorting foreigners to wear the mask.

Why are you targeting tourists? When I look at the photo everyone appears to be maskless. I am arriving in Merida on Nov. 30 from Canada where we cannot fly unless we are vaccinated (we have had both doses). And yes we packed a lot of masks. Are you saying the Mexican people pose a threat to us, or are we a threat to them??? Should you not be saying EVERYONE should be wearing masks if you are around a lot of people?

Wear a mask outside?? Have we gone completely from science to superstition?
