The municipal president of San Pedro Mixtepec, Fredy Gil Pineda Go par, affirmed that in the last hours he has arrested 30 people for not wearing face masks on public roads.

“It is impossible that a municipal government can with all the demand of people that are in the street; no government could,” explained the governor. ” 

You can’t fill the jail with people and you can’t stop the economy either, because we live off the people who visit us,” he said.

Meanwhile, other destinations such as Puerto Ángel and Mazunte also report overcrowding of their destinations and restaurant occupations of more than 60 percent.

Meanwhile, the governor of Oaxaca, Alejandro Murat, urged visitors who choose the state to enjoy the holiday season, to abide by the recommendations and safety and hygiene protocols implemented by the tourism service providers and by the municipal authorities to reduce the risk of transmission of the disease by covid-19.

He recommended at all times to follow the basic recommendations, such as the use of face masks in public spaces, maintaining social distance, frequent hand washing, and respecting the measures that the municipalities and communities have established.
