City of Acapulco finds 117 in contempt of social distancing

Acapulco, Guerrero — Civil Protection of Acapulco says they have found 117 people in contempt of social distancing offenses during what are considered, non-essential activities. The 117 were found over the course of two days along beaches and in private swimming pool areas.

In a press release, the city of Acapulco reported the findings after municipal officials began touring areas. During the tours, the city says that more than 30 of those found in contempt for social distancing were tourists at private condominium swimming pools.

The balance were found distributed among other private and public areas of the city. The Government of Acapulco, headed by Mayor Adela Román Ocampo, says the crackdown came after cases of infections continue to rise. Earlier this week, the governor of Guerrero announced that destinations such as Acapulco, Zihuatanejo will remain shut with no reactivation date in site due to the rising figures.
