The government of Quintana Roo, Mexico, has announced the closure of the entrances of Chetumal City. Governor Carlos Joaquin issued the order in an effort to protect the health of the citizens. This includes the monitoring of traffic by the police and health officials, starting at 8 o’clock last night. The secretary of Public Security confirmed this, and stated that vehicles with food and supplies will have a free pass. Private vehicles will be pulled over for questioning. Those who do not have an urgent need to enter or exit will be encouraged to return to their homes. The governor also implemented a series of measures to keep residents safe and healthy. The first one is to strengthen preventative measures, mainly social distancing, and apply hygiene measures. Health questionnaires have come into effect starting yesterday at the airport when passengers arrive on flights. When entering the city, there will also be health questionnaires, and officials will verify if the person is an inhabitant of the city. The State Government will maintain guards in its offices, while others will work remotely from home for the next two weeks. The last measure is that limited hours will be allowed for supermarkets and businesses to be open. The sale of alcoholic beverages is prohibited for the next 14 days.
