This province’s civil and military authorities agreed to implement additional measures to those of the Central Government to face the COVID-19 pandemic. The closure of beaches and spas stands out.

Also, they will regulate vehicular traffic on the avenue of El Malecón, where parking will not be allowed, since, for several weeks in that space, there have been accumulations of people without maintaining physical distance and without using protective masks.

While in public markets, sellers will have to abide by the sanitary protocol to reduce the chances of the coronavirus spread.

In the same way, they warn the different banking entities, both public and private, that they must enable more spaces to welcome customers, who daily to carry out transactions are forced to crowd in long lines.
