The head of government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, urged the capital’s population to comply with hygiene and health regulations after the capital changed from the epidemiological traffic light of the red to the orange warning.

“We still have to take care of ourselves. Orange is closer to red than to green, which means that we are on alert, that COVID-19 is still with us and that the only way to protect ourselves is to follow the rules properly, our face masks every time to use when we go out to constantly wash our hands, the healthy distance, “said the official in a video posted on her Twitter account.

As of this week, Mexico City did not resume any significant activities that were suspended by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sheinbaum justified the decision that the city’s hospitalization has decreased slightly in the past two weeks and is currently at 61%, although he made it clear that some activities would stop if the downward trend reversed.

  • On Tuesday 30th, the shops in the historic center;
  • On Wednesday, July 1st, hotels and restaurants will reopen with 30% of their capacity.
  • Thursday 2, street markets;
  • And on Friday 3, aesthetics by appointment.

Religious services, cinemas and theaters, leisure events, concert halls, museums, amusement parks, fitness studios, canteens, bars, casinos, companies, offices and educational services are still closed.
