These openings do not apply in the cantons, primarily in the Northern Zone where an orange alert was decreed due to a large number of infections.

 

The Director of Health Surveillance of the Ministry of Health, Rodrigo Marín, on Fruday called on the population not to let their guard down and respect the “golden rules” to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections.

Remember to stay at home is possible and if you must go out, wear a mask (not mandatory), maintain social distancing and practice good hygiene such as washing your hands before touching your face, nose or eyes and remember to the cough and sneeze protocol.
