The Ministerio de Salud (Health Ministry) said it was forced to intervene to regulate organized activities at the State stadium following an action of unconstitutionality filed by area residents.
The prohibition is for ALL CONCERTS past 8pm and activities that surpass 45 decibels, according to the guidelines presented on Thursday.
As to sport activities, there is no ban – not yet – but Salud will be monitoring sound levels during the year before making any determination. But night concerts are definitely out.
Concert promoters say they are not the only ones affected by the prohibition, but millions of dollars of revenue per year for the stadium.
Edgar Barrantes, manager of the Estadio Nacional, was quiet yesterday. He did not provide a reaction, nor would say what action will be taken to mitigate the noise level at the stadium.
