He also reported that as of next Monday the hours of entry to rivers, beaches or spas will be from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The decision to extend the curfew hours arises after the inter-institutional task table in which the ministries of Health, Commerce, and Labor and the Social Security Fund participate, evaluated the request of restaurant owners by virtue of seeking the facilities that generate a better economic recovery.
The curfew has been easing as COVID

The authorities reiterate the mandatory use of masks, and urge constant hand washing, the use of alcohol gel and maintaining physical distance of at least 2 meters.
