With the return of Mexico City to Semáforo Naranja, starting this week, various establishments such as theaters, churches, gyms, swimming pools and other sports spaces will be able to reopen. However, all health measures against COVID-19 established by the authorities must be complied with.

The news was released by the Ministry of Economic Development (Sedeco). Likewise, Fadlala Akabani, head of Sedeco, commented that the intention is to maintain a balance between economic reactivation, public health and reopening (the latter are part of the Activate without Risk program).

In addition, Sedeco requested that those who resume operations register and comply with the necessary measures through the CDMX Government page . Thanks to this, around two thousand gyms and sports clubs in the CDMX will be able to restart activities. Next, we tell you what are the measures that you should consider as a user.
