City council says until epidemiological light allows, Isla Mujeres beaches remain closed

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Miriam Trejo León, general secretary of the Isla Mujeres City Council says that since the epidemiological traffic light remains orange, the beaches of Isla Mujeres remain closed.

She says the closure is a measure of containment and care of social health before the possible spread of Covid-19 among island families and those visiting the destination.

Trejo León explained that the Juan Carrillo Soberanis government has implemented guards from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on all beaches in the north of the island.

“The Isla Mujeres beaches continue to be closed to the general public as the state government’s traffic light indicates that we are orange, a color in which these spaces cannot yet be opened. This is done with the sole objective of taking care of the health of all by avoiding the spread of the virus,” said the official.

Trejo León emphasized that although some essential sectors have begun reopening, it is not yet time for the beaches to open, however, when the time comes, the government will maintain a strategic plan so that the reopening is carried out in an orderly and responsible manner since health will continue to be a priority.

“Until the contagion lights allows, the municipality’s beaches will continue to be closed to everyone. Let us continue taking hygiene and healthy measures to minimize the impact of the coronavirus on our island and thus, soon reactivate ourselves completely. It is everyone’s responsibility to take preventive actions to take care of ourselves,” she added.
