[HQ] So confusing are the sanitary vehicular restrictions for the period of August 10 to 21 that even the people who wrote the decree couldn’t get it right.

To that end, on Monday, the government had to run to solve an error in the initial executive decree for the areas under orange alert during the so-called closure phase.

What happened?

On Saturday, August 8, the president of the Comision Nacional de Emergencias (CNE), Alexander Solis, explained the “unification” change in the vehicular restrictions of ther 12 days of August.

Solis explained that for Mother’s Day weekend, only vehicles with odd-numbered ending license plates (1,3,5,7,9) can circulate on Saturday, August 15 and even-numbered ending (0,2,4,6,8) on Sunday, August 16.

In the resolution published on August 10, in the official newsletter La Gaceta, it read that on Saturdays only the vehicles with license plates ending in odd numbers and on Sundays those ending in even numbers.

The erroneous decree

Total in contradiction of the announcement made by the CNE president.
