Yuseli López Tec, director of the DIF Isla Mujeres,said when the pantries were donated in early February a call was put out to single mothers to register, and registration is still open at the DIF Facebook page. They should leave their name and phone number and will receive a time and date, in order to avoid agglomerations which can contribute to the propagation of Covid-19.
There is no official date when the ferries of the Molina-Aviomar company will go into operation, but TV Isla Mujeres says it could be next week. The company is recruiting personnel to work in Puerto Juarez and in Isla Mujeres where it is expected they will open a new ticket office. The two boats, "Jetway 1 & 2" are moored at the dock from which they will operate, where shrimp boats were previously docked, which is to the south of the Ultramar terminal and has public parking.
