Cozumel federal officials evict hundreds found at illegal party

Cozumel, Q.R. — A holiday party of more than 350 has been shut down in Cozumel by authorities who say covid health protocols were not being followed. The Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris) proceeded to close the holiday party that was being held at a private home in the Andrés Quintana Roo neighborhood.

According to Cozumel Civil Protection Directorate Hector Mac Marin, the agency responded to the complaint of an illegal party. He said that once officials arrived, they confirmed that guests were without masks, health protocols were not being practiced and that the home was selling alcoholic beverages without the corresponding permits.

Mac Marin also said that personnel from Cofepris were assisted with support of the Quintana Roo Police and the National Guard to prevent an incident, while authorities carried out the suspension and removed the attendees.

Suspension seals were placed at the entrance of the home.
