Inner city roads slowly reopening in Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Playa del Carmen mayor Laura Beristain Navarrete says inner city roadblocks, which were put into place due to the Covid epidemic, are slowly being removed. She says that the opening of roads for the city has begun, including exits along the federal bridge.

In a press release, Beristain Navarrete said that the roads, including those along Avenida Juárez, are being reopened as part of the agreement signed with business groups and the Government of Solidaridad for economic reactivation.

The mayor met with business associates from Coparmex, the Riviera Maya Hotel Association, the Riviera Maya Business Coordinating Council, Amexme, Sindemex and Canaco, as well as representatives from shopping malls and the ADO bus company, who agreed to gradually open some roads for the reactivation of business.

As part of this alliance, the businesses become jointly responsible for the Covid health protocols and prevention of the spread of the virus in their facilities as well as ensuring clients comply with safety and hygiene protocols.

The news came during the same week as the announcement of a 10-day pilot project that will see the reopening of local Playa del Carmen beaches. The pilot project being applied is similar to that recently carried out in Los Cabos.
