Puerto Vallarta enters phase 0 of the gradual plan for reactivation
Hotels will operate by keeping closed common areas such as swimming pools, bars, gyms or the beach
On May 14, 2020, the Governor of the state of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez, announced that as of May 18, the state will enter phase 0 of the gradual plan for economic reactivation. Phase 0 will last at least 15 days, allowing the gradual return of various sectors. It is the first step to prepare the protocols for the next phase of the plan and during this time, social distancing, the use of face masks and antibacterial gel are still in force.
Industries that had not been considered essential and that are linked to supply chains will be able to start implementing phase 0, as long as they have established protocols, they will be able to operate up to 50% of their capacity. Companies engaged in commercial activities may operate as long as they comply with social distancing measures, sanitary protocols and with a maximum limit of 50 people simultaneously. The beaches, public spaces, shopping malls, gyms, spas, discotheques and other businesses that generate crowds will remain closed until further notice. Restaurants and cafes will work at 50% of their capacity. The hotels will operate by keeping closed common areas such as swimming pools, bars, gyms or the beach.
It should be noted that Puerto Vallarta continues with the intense actions of deep cleaning, sanitation of public spaces and standardized measures of prevention, both in the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, Maritime Terminal, Central Bus Station, public transportation, near hospitals, establishments in General and government offices, which remain open with limited staff available to assist citizens.
The Tourism Trust will continue to work closely with state, federal and tourism sector authorities, for the progressive implementation of protocols and to support the transition to the next phase of recovery.
