Experts in the tourism sector agree that the government of the next president of the United States, Joe Biden, will mean a drastic change in the way the Covid-19 pandemic is dealt with, which will mean a brake on mobility, the opening of air borders and tourist activities.
*The same was done at all points where the sanitary filters are in Jalisco. The objective is to continue with the protocols established in the state's COVID-19 plan to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. In total there are 9 filters installed in the state, 4 of them in the borders with Michoacán, Guanajuato, Colima and Nayarit.
Official Statement- In the preamble to the entry into Phase 0 of the Jalisco Plan for Economic Reactivation, activity was reinforced in the sanitary filters installed in different highway sections of the entity, three of them at the entrances to the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area.
The objective is to continue with the protocols established in the Jalisco COVID-19 Plan to safeguard the health of Jalisco residents and thus prevent the spread of the Coronavirus in the State.
In each of the sanitary filters, there is the presence of operating personnel from different levels of government; they make a random stop of vehicles, which will allow timely action in the event of detecting people with respiratory symptoms or discomfort.
Personnel from the Ministry of Health carry out the review in the sanitary filters, body temperature is taken from drivers and passengers and a questionnaire is applied to them; If they have symptoms they will be recommended to return home and call the Coronavirus COVID-19 3338233220 hotline, where patients will be provided with a follow-up.
Filters are installed at the following points
-Highway to Morelia (Santa Cruz de las Flores)
-Highway to Chapala (Ixtlahuacán de los Membrillos)
-Highway to Nogales (Venta del Astillero)
-Entrance to the municipality of Tapalpa
-Entrance to the municipality of Mazamitla
Additionally, the operation of the four interstate filters located on the borders with Michoacán, Guanajuato, Colima and
Nayarit are maintained, which are found at the following checkpoints:
-Degollado-La Piedad Highway (On the border between Jalisco and Michoacán)
-Caseta de Leon-Lagos de Moreno highway toll both (On the border between Jalisco and Guanajuato)
-San Marcos Toll Booth on the highway to Manzanillo (On the border between Jalisco and Colima)
-Las Palmas-Puerto Vallarta Highway (In the Jalisco-Nayarit direction)
The participating agencies in these devices are: the Ministry of Security, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the police stations of the municipalities involved, the Jalisco State Civil Protection and Fire Department, as well as the Red Cross.
The Government of Mexico, under the command of President Andrés Manul López Obrador, announced this Wednesday the "Plan for the return to the new normal", in which it established an epidemiological traffic light that will determine when the quarantine can be lifted in the municipalities from the country.
In this sense, there are four colors on the map that indicate the degree of contagion, and therefore determine the date on which municipalities can return to their daily activities and lift measures such as the confinement and closure of non-essential businesses. .
For this, on May 18, 269 "municipalities of hope" that do not register any contagion may begin to resume their normal activities, with extreme isolation protocols compared to those that do, with rigorous sanitary filters.
While from May 18 to 31, preparations would be made for the municipalities with low transmission to return with limitations or in full to their activities and lift the confinement.
At the traffic light by colors established by the Ministry of Health, the municipalities in green, may return to essential activities and completely lift the confinement on June, is the case, for example, of Puerto Vallarta and Bahía de Banderas, which they present a “very low” transmission level.
In these municipalities, presential classes may be resumed, non-essential businesses, public squares, beaches, shopping centers and hotels are opened, in the case of tourist sites. That is to say, everything will return to operate normally, and the National Day of Healthy Distance will conclude.
In those municipalities marked in yellow, transmission is medium, and activities may be restored that same day in a limited way, with a reduced presence of people in public spaces, non-essential activities must operate with caution and there will be no face-to-face classes.
In oranges, the presence of people in public spaces should be even more limited, non-essential businesses will not be able to open yet and confinement will continue to be recommended. And in the reds, the transmission is maximum and the quarantine cannot be lifted yet.
The traffic light will be updated every week, however, said the deputy secretary of Prevention and Health Promotion federal, Hugo López Gatell, the logic is that everyone follow the trend that they already showed on today's map.
