As a result of higher occupancy rates this Easter weekend, Tulum officials investigated populated areas in the city, which led to hotel closures.
Officials from the Federal Commission for Protection Against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris) inspected many public areas located around Tulum to make sure the city is obeying COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
Over the weekend, around 35 to 40 public places were inspected, according to Alfonso Bastos, head of Cofepris. Overall, five areas were suspended and two were shut down.
Five hotels were shut down due to over-capacity populations. As a result of preventing COVID-19 infections, the city has imposed capacity limits on all public areas to prevent overpopulation and high infection rates. The two parties being hosted were illegal and were shut down.
In an attempt to lower COVID-19 cases, consistent speculation of hotels and public areas can be expected. “We suspended five hotels for not respecting the capacity and two clandestine parties were closed, including one yesterday at two in the morning,” Basto stated.
“Several inspections were made, they were around 35, 40, over the weekend,” furtherly stated Basto.
Tulum was classified as the municipality with the highest COVID-19 growth rate in the state last week.
Governor Carlos Joaquin established that the municipality of Tulum has recorded a 200 percent increase in infections through his weekly COVID-19 speculation.
