The head of COFEPRIS (Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks) announced that gyms in Quintana Roo must carry out their operations outdoors

      The official, Miguel Alejandro Pino Murillo, said that public transport must operate at a maximum of 50% capacity, and there are 123 'verifiers' throughout the state, as well as support from the Mobility Institute INMOVEQROO. He said that in the case of maritime passenger transport, the ferries are allowed a capacity of up to 75 percent, since they are under federal jurisdiction. He said that two of the ferry companies, which includes Ultramar, have been sanctioned and required to pay fines of more than 100,000 pesos. He said there are ongoing inspections that these companies are complying with all health protocols.
