BARS AND NIGHT CLUBS DID NOT UNDERSTAND With respect to the closing of bars and nightclubs, the governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro Ramirez, emphasized that "it was a warning in time, we said and pointed out that the established protocols were not being complied with" the people in the bars and nightclubs were acting without any sanitary measures, they were acting irresponsibly, there was no reaction, preventive measures were taken with the municipalities and these were insufficient and today the message is strong, we have to return to classes and education comes first before partying. Alfaro announced that in view of the cancellation of bars and nightclubs, he instructed the Economic Board to generate a pool of resources that will support the personnel of these businesses with salaries so that all employees will have a guaranteed income this month.
