The XXIII City Hall of Tijuana, through the Inspection and Verification Department, carried out surveillance operations in different parts of Tijuana this weekend. 20 street vendors located in the Valle del Sol neighborhood were fined, due to the fact that they did not respect the sanitary protocols established to avoid COVID-19 infections.
The head of Inspection and Verification, César Abraham Heredia Rodríguez, informed that it is important that owners, businessmen and merchants follow the guidelines established by the Secretariat of Health of the State to prevent coronavirus infections, so they should not relax measures.
"We are in the yellow pase on the epidemiological traffic light chart, but that does not mean that we have to relax the measures, but to continue to take care of each other, keeping a healthy distance, using masks, antibacterial gel, respecting the filters in the establishments, to prevent a third wave of spread of the virus in this border city," said the official.
Heredia Rodríguez explained that during the weekend, operations were carried out in establishments, bars and restaurants, in which the capacity and health measures were supervised, for which five fines were applied to established businesses in the Centro, Playas de Tijuana and Otay Centenario districts; as well as six sanctions to street vendors for not respecting the assigned place to carry out their sales and for having expired permits.
As for the neighborhoods with the highest number of active cases detected by the Baja California Secretariat of Health, they are: Abedules, Lomas del Rio, Torres del Matamoros and Gabilondo, so operations will be reinforced to prevent further activity in markets, established businesses, swap meets, restaurants, among others, to prevent the spread of the virus.
