They ignore healthy distance and fill Seafood markets in the metropolis


Zapopan City Council installed sanitary filters to avoid crowds, but once inside the customers forgot about the precautions

Although the Zapopan City Council installed filters in the Seafood market to prevent customers from crowding in during their Easter food purchases, inside, citizens forgot the healthy distance to reduce the risks of COVID-19 contagion.

From 11:00 am, an operation was implemented in the vicinity of the market. Only one entrance was enabled per Pino Suárez avenue and inspectors were available to organize lines, with one-meter separations between one person and another, to allow limited income.

However, there were those who bothered and demanded to pass in a group. Others tried to outwit the authority by pretending they were going separate, but inside they met again.

Most of the tenants and workers wore masks and gloves.

In the seafood markets of the Reforma and Miravalle neighborhoods in Guadalajara, the situation was no different.

Although filters were not installed as in Zapopan, in addition to the sanitation tunnels installed by merchants, Civil Protection personnel went to both spaces to remember the preventive measures before COVID-19 and to deliver antibacterial gel to the attendees.

32 tenants of the Mar market are received

For failing to comply with security and hygiene measures in the face of the contingency by COVID-19, the Zapopan City Council verbally warned 32 tenants of the Mar market. In addition, the Directorate of Inspection and Surveillance applied a fine to the administration of the market for the same motive; the amount will be determined by qualifying judges, and if they repeat, the sanction will be between eight thousand and 10,000 pesos.

“They did not abide by the guidelines and recommendations that had been given to them previously. When we arrived, they did not have any of the corresponding measures. They had no sanitary fence, they were not regulating that the healthy distance between people was respected, and there was no antibacterial gel , ” said Tatiana Anaya, director of Inspection and Surveillance.

That is why sanitary fences were implemented to try to organize buyers in groups of 50 people every half hour.

Corona market sanitized

The Corona market, in the Historic Center of Guadalajara, also received an exhaustive cleaning so that customers who still go to that space have less possibilities of getting infected.

Since the period of isolation began, on March 20, municipal, state and federal authorities have reinforced hygiene measures in all public spaces, and markets are no exception.

Although to a lesser extent, the food businesses continue to open, although they are asked to only offer takeout food.
