A new development in the fight against COVID-19 is upon us here in Quintana Roo. Like many other countries around the world, this stage brings with it great uncertainty and questions about the future. How will we reactivate our economy, go to work and, at the same time, avoid getting infected or infecting others?
The coronavirus is going to remain in our environment, it is not going to go away. The virus will evolve, and this epidemic will still affect us. We must live with it.
That is why it is very important to keep taking preventive measures, hygiene measures, and social distancing measures. Please, keep washing your hands continuously, do not touch your face, do not greet each other with hugs and kisses, and continue to practice social isolation to stop the spread of Covid-19.
We urge all citizens to continue to follow the instructions issued by the state health authorities. We want to reopen the state as soon as possible but in order to do that we must meet health and safety standards for different areas of business and society.
Implementing standardized safety and hygiene measures for different sectors of our economy and society has not been easy. But this work has been essential to ensure that there are prevention and security measures in place in order for us to move forward.
For example, in the realm of public transport, we must keep our distance because the consequences of not doing so can be terrible, they can be fatal, as has happened in other parts of the country or in other countries, creating a “second wave” of infections. , This interrupts whatever progress is made and will result in us having to go back into isolation, stop productive activities, and go back to where we started with this pandemic.
I am sure that in Quintana Roo we will have the necessary maturity, discipline, and commitment to take care of ourselves, to take care of our families, to take care of our people, the most vulnerable groups in society, and prevent them from becoming ill.
So, let’s all work together, let’s have the discipline, the commitment, let’s increase hygiene measures, respect the different measures that already exist. If only 30% of the workforce will go out one day, the next day another 30% can go out, followed by another 30%, but only if we continue to respect the different safety measures implemented for business in our state.
I want to ask all of you to take care of ourselves, that those who have to stay at home remain at home, and that those who do have to leave home for work do so with all the preventive measures that will ensure their well-being and that of their families. Only then can we help Quintana Roo succeed, reactivate the economy and prevent the spread of Covid-19.
I am sure that in Quintana Roo, if we all do it this way, if we all commit to this discipline, and commit to hygiene in the same way we have been doing so far and which is leads us to the possibility of an economic reopening, then I am sure that Together We Will Succeed.
