Intercasa Posted January 16, 2021 Report Share Posted January 16, 2021 Panic Button Facts – January 15, 2021 Early rumors and news sources cites pending closures and restrictions for businesses and public life. News outlets published WITHOUT reading the actual published decree. The Official Decree publication can be found here for any of you that speak Spanish https://periodicooficial.jalisco.gob.mx/sites/periodicooficial.jalisco.gob.mx/files/01-15-21-bis.pdf I will summarize here the salient points of which have been misrepresented today or were changed from earlier reports so everybody knows what the law requires of them. This applies to the State of Jalisco but many municipalities may enact their own restrictions, Chapala, for example has done just that today. The restrictions are as follows: Commercial establishments (those not ordered closed) shall have a maximum density of people of no more than one person per 4 square meters in closed areas and one person per 2 square meters in open areas with a maximum capacity of 50% of their capacity. All businesses must: 1) Deny access and not attend to anyone without a face mask 2) Only allow access to one person per family and not allow access to people under 15 nor older than 60. 3) Restrict parking space to no more than 25% of its capacity 4) Install sanitary filters at all pedestrian access points and interior parking lot access 5) If the maximum capacity is reached, clients shall wait outside in lines that have 1.5 meters between each person Restaurants and Cafes may operate until 10pm. Then it is only home delivery. Maximum 6 people per table. Hotels and motels only up to 50% capacity, no common areas or group activities or parties. Permanent closures of the following businesses: Movie theaters, theaters, museums, zoos, aquariums, as well as cultural and recreational events, bars, casinos, cantinas, nightclubs, gyms, sports clubs and private sports facilities. Government, corporate and professional service offices should prioritize working from home when condition permit. Religious activities: No religious masses or ceremonies. Churches open for individual visits but only up to 50% of their capacity or up to 50 people. No singing or chanting Schools: Classes in public and private schools suspended for all educational levels. Daycare allowed under approved protocols. Activities in public spaces: Prohibited to use public spaces such as sports areas, plazas, municipal gardens, community centers and the like. Via Recreativa suspended and beaches only can be used 5am to 3pm. All parties and meetings suspended, prohibited to have public concerts, parties, fairs or festivals in the street, parties in restaurants, bars, nightclubs, event halls and event places. No fireworks or bonfires and no equestrian events. Measures valid until January 31, 2021 and are subject to being extended if necessary. Sanitary checkpoints to be done at airports, ports, bus stations and highways to adjoining states. This seems really watered down from the doom and gloom news reports this afternoon. Still it seems like something is missing. Really there is, they published decrees 2, 3 and 4. Where is number 1? Also I thought, crap, my clientele, retirees cannot be let into my law firm, but then saw that they forgot to differentiate for essential services and if they cannot come into my office neither can the go to the supermarket, banks, clinics, laboratories or hospitals. 1 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
