With exemplary measures, Quintana Roo is placed at the forefront of responsible tourism
Quintana Roo, the Mexican Caribbean Jewel, has adopted additional measures that it will implement this Easter to avoid new infections of COVID-19.
Under the slogan, “Safe vacations 2021,” the state executive explained that between Monday, March 29 and Friday, April 12, five sanitary controls will be implemented in the hotel zone of Cancun. In these filters, rapid and random coronavirus tests will be applied to bathers, and the following actions will also be carried out:
* Temperature measurement.
* Dispensing of antibacterial gel.
* Give a face mask to those who do not have one for some reason.
* Health promotion through allusive posters.
* In case of detection of positive cases after the rapid test, health and isolation protocols will be applied.
Out of the total of five controls, three are pedestrian and are located along the beach. The remaining two are vehicular and are located on the road accesses that lead to the hotel zone. The staff working at these points will also be in charge of ensuring that the restricted hours are observed in bars and restaurants.
The governor of Quintana Roo, Carlos Joaquín, asked the tourism service providers to redouble their vigilance and efforts to keep the tourists safer. “We are at a key moment, do not take steps back due to carelessness. Habits are the best vaccine for tourism to continue advancing and protect the lives of Quintana Roo residents and tourists, “he wrote in a statement.
During the Easter period, the entity will remain in yellow at the Epidemiological Alert Traffic Light, which is why the beaches can open at 60% of their capacity.
Hotels, restaurants, historic sites, theme parks, golf courses, and tourist services can also operate at 60%. And as for mobility companies, taxis can admit a maximum of two passengers, and the rest of public transport can occupy 50% of its capacity.
