Two tianguis reopen in Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — Two tianguis in the municipality of Puerto Morelos have been given the green light to reopen, but with strict health measures. Mayor Laura Fernández Piña authorized the gradual opening of the merchants’ tianguis in Leona Vicario and in Puerto Morelos with full health protcol compliance.

On Sunday, merchants of the tianguis restarted activities after several months of interruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We have authorized the street markets be reactivated from the first weekend of November. They are going to reactivate with all sanitary measures such as healthy distance, the use of face masks and antibacterial gel,” said Fernández Piña.

“We are supporting this sector for its economic reactivation, giving the opportunity for sellers to resume work and generate income for their families since many of them depend exclusively on this activity to support their homes,” she added.

The Director of Inspection, Orión García Méndez, reported that personnel from his agency verified health protocol compliance on Sunday, while offering antibacterial gel and free face masks for people who do not have access.

He explained that everyone attending the markets will be required to wear mouth guards. “The instruction of the mayor is to provide support to this sector, so we will be present every weekend for surveillance as long as the epidemiological traffic light allows it,” he stated.
