Measures to stop the spread of the covid-19 virus are getting stricter by the day. As of today, gyms, sports centers, sports clubs for activities like karate and judo, and swimming pools are closed indefinitely and until further notice.
This was announced by the Ministry of Health yesterday. The measures are temporary and are for areas and activities in which people congregate. Hands on sports easily spread the virus from one person to another. All activities, organizations, and places of worship must also close if they cannot guarantee 1.4 meters between people.
Places excluded from the suspension include mobile food services, short term accommodations like motels, shopping malls, sodas, and Farmer’s Fairs. They must remain at 50% of their normal occupancy. They must also ensure toilet paper, antibacterial soap, alcohol gel with at least 60% ethanol and paper towels to dry hands. They must display protocols for coughing, sneezing, and hand washing. Bathrooms and surfaces must be cleaned frequently with chlorine and disposable towels.
