Friends of Quintana Roo:
I’m here to tell you again how important it is to maintain preventive measures, hygiene measures, increase social distance, and most importantly, to stay home.
We are a few days away from reaching the month of June, the date we had looked at for the potential resumption of productive life in the state. We want to resume activity gradually, putting the health and well-being of our residents first as we seek to reignite the economic development of Quintana Roo and get out of the deep economic depression that has affected the state’s families and businesses.
It is of great importance that we do this together, because together we will succeed in this situation, as long as each and every inhabitant of Quintana Roo adheres to the highest levels of shared responsibility.
If we lower our guard now, if we loosen preventive measures, we are going to prolong our time inside and push back our restart date even further. We don’t want that. I am sure that we all want to continue to do great things and achieve better living standards in our state, as we have been doing.
Therefore, please stay home, keep taking preventive measures, more hygiene measures, and continue to be aware of all protocols regarding the return to productivity in each of the state’s various sectors.
I know that there are a lot of questions about the “new modernity” or “new normal” once we re-open. We will have to live with the coronavirus for some time and therefore we will have to be extremely careful in the way in which we return to business.
For this reason, we must continue to practice social distancing, and avoid hugging and kissing each other. I do not know how much longer we will have to enforce these measures, but it will be until we have a vaccine or treatment to protect everyone’s well-being.
That is why it is important to maintain preventive measures, wash your hands continuously, use antibacterial gel, use face masks, masks that can prevent the virus from entering the eyes, among other measures and protective equipment that prevent the spread of Covid-19 or Coronavirus.
Let’s all do it together, let’s do it well, let’s put extra effort into this.
I encourage you to keep doing this. Let’s not relax the measures, we must increase them. We can get to June very well. We will start with our essential activities gradually and very carefully.
I invite all the people of Quintana Roo to join me in this effort, because together we will succeed.
