Three more Puerto Morelos projects shut for non-compliance with coronavirus restrictions

Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — Inspectors of the municipal Secretariat of Urban Development and Ecology have closed three more construction sites around Puerto Morelos for violating the non-essential work suspension.

Personnel from the agency made their way to three more sites where they placed closure stickers. Two of the three sites were in the Villas Morelos II subdivision and the third in the Joaquín Zetina Gasca neighborhood.

Tirso Esquivel Ávila, secretario de Desarrollo Urbano said that the developers of each of the companies will be fined for non-compliance, noting that the Secretariat of Sustainable Urban Territorial Development (Sedetus) of the state government issued prevention protocols to deal with the pandemic, which were announced by the city council as effective April 4.

“All non-essential activities, including construction work, were suspended, so we are all obligated to abide by the rules since the health of the workers, that of their families and that of the community itself is not put at risk.

“We are in the most critical stage of the contingency due to the massive spread of the virus, which forces us to be more responsible with our actions and stay at home,” he said.

On Thursday, a construction project in the Old Town of Puerto Morelos was closed down after inspectiors found it operating with workers on site.
