Domingo M. Flores: During the first weekend of the activation of the Emergency “Red Button”, five businesses were closed for not complying with the measures decreed by the Government of the State of Jalisco, including liquor stores and restaurants; two located in the city of Chapala, two in Ajijic and one more in Atotonilquillo.
At least 200 enforcement staff from different departments of the municipal government participated In the operation. Twenty-four reports of private parties were also investigated; however, since the meetings were on private property, they could not be closed but were asked to turn down the music and were reminded that crowds are not allowed due to the increase of cases of Covid-19 in the State.
«The parties were not held in public premises but on private property, and we cannot close down houses. After we arrived, they turned down the music, but as soon as our people left, they turned up again. These were very irresponsible people celebrating a variety of things,» said the President of Chapala, Moisés Anaya Aguilar.
Anaya Aguilar explained t the officials in charge of the operation were ordered to avoid confrontation; on the contrary, they were to respectfully explain to those who violate the Emergency Button decree that no public or private meetings can be held.
Public Security responded to 22 cases of people who were aggressive because of the measures were being enforced. In addition, it was announced that as of November 4, officers of Mobility boarded the Chapala-Guadalajara buses to verify that users and drivers wear masks; if they were not, the authorities provided them with one.
Anaya Aguilar called the tourists irresponsible, who, despite the activation of the Emergency Button, decided to come to Chapala in the midst of the contingency.
«Those who came behaved very irresponsibly. They jumped the bars in the restricted areas, and there were people who helped them. Don’t believe what you read on social networks. We can’t be everywhere all the time so some people are just careless for 10 to 15 minutes. But just braking the protocol rules to get a picture can infect others. Tell them that we are doing our job,» said the president of the municipality.
Anaya Aguilar congratulated the solidarity of the merchants of the Malecón who complied one hundred percent with the sanitary measures, and recalled that the municipality will continue to close businesses that do not comply with the decree until it ends on November 13.
