QCOSTARICA – The announcement made on Wednesday by the Government to end the vehicle restrictions as of March 7 and the use of the QR code on April 1, was welcomed by Costa Rica’s business sector.

Arturo Rosabal, vice president of the Cámara de Comercio de Costa Rica (Costa Rica Chamber of Commerce), affirmed that the move will allow businesses to continue investing in job creation and in reactivating the economy.

On March 7, the vehicle restrictions nationwide will be eliminated, meaning retail stores, malls, restaurants, bars, and others will be able to operate again as before the pandemic.

For the central core of the city of San Jose, bounded by the Circunvalacion, starting March 7, the weekday vehicular restrictions will be maintained in the same way prior to the pandemic, from 7 am to 7 am, on Mondays vehicles with plates ending in 1 & 2 cannot circulate, on Tuesdays plates ending in 3 & 4, Wednesdays 5 & 6, Thursdays 7 & 9 and Fridays 9 & 0.

“This measure, without a doubt, is a good example that we have been doing from the Government, positioning a responsible country at an international level, taking care of all of us and pointing out that we are a safe destination in terms of tourism. I make a call for tourists and businessmen to continue with the use of masks, hand washing and the call for vaccination,” said Gustavo Alvarado, Minister of Tourism.
