José Angel León Zumarán, head of the Department of Commerce, Alcohol and Public Entertainment in Ensenada, reported that although there will be no prohibition for selling acohol, with the change of color to red, businesses must operate until 10:00 or 12:00 p.m., depending on the type of business.

In the case of places that sell alcohol, they will have to stop selling it until midnight and clear their premises by 1:00 in the morning.

"Those who do not comply with this will be subject to fines and closure, for a maximum of 15 days," said Zumarán in a meeting with merchants. For the bars, the "restaurant" modality will continue, that is to say, to pair food with the consumption of alcoholic drinks.

"We will be doing surveillance rounds and will continue to operate. The fines, for people or establishments that do not comply with these measures, will be 500 UMA's. If it is a repeat offender, there will be a closure of 1 to 15 days, depending on the offense," said the director.

Authorities also specified that there is no curfew in this port of Baja California, however the population is invited to reduce mobility until 10:00 at night.

In case of observing the non-compliance of the preventive protocols by COVID-19, they also look for people to be a "Citizen Inspector", who can report certain irregularities through the number of WhatsApp (646) 2871414. This in order to avoid the increase of cases in the municipality.
