Following the upsurge in coronavirus cases in Nuevo León, certain economic and social activities will be restricted on weekends to reduce the number of infections.
The official pointed out that supermarkets have to close on Saturdays and Sundays and urged citizens to buy urgent items from grocery stores.
The Nuevo León Economy Minister added that citizens are taking advantage of the fact that these types of facilities are open and non-essential going out to distract themselves and make unnecessary purchases.
This measure comes into force on December 5th and applies to supermarkets, shopping centers, restaurants, cinemas, museums and circuses. Likewise, warehouses and convenience stores cannot sell alcohol on weekends.
"They have to close on weekends because they're not just selling groceries. When we close squares and malls, people get distracted and go to self-service stores to buy toys, get distracted and run around." said the official.
In the unrestricted sectors, there will be pharmacies, drug stores, and drug stores – one-off business – convenience and grocery stores, medical and funeral services, private security services, gas stations, banks, and auto repair shops.
