COVID-19: Closures, fines and sanctions were imposed on Tijuana businesses over the weekend

This was applied during the operations carried out by the Inspection and Verification Department

Despite the epidemiological traffic light being green, managers of restaurants, bars, department stores, food stands and street vendors must respect the guidelines implemented by the Secretariat of Health, indicated the Inspection and Verification Department.

This weekend alone, as part of its operations, four establishments were closed for having unhealthy facilities, 19 fines were applied to stalls in swap meets, 12 more to street vendors and six sanctions to fixed commerce.

Three businesses were closed for unhealthy conditions and one more for disturbing the public order. All of them were located in the areas of La Mesa, Cerro Colorado and Otay Centenario. As detailed, once detected, fines were applied and the businesses were closed.

At the same time, sanctions were applied to another six established businesses because they did not have the necessary documentation and security measures to operate.

On the other hand, 12 fines were applied to street vendors for not having the proper documentation; while 19 fines were applied to swap meet businesses, seven for serving people who were not wearing masks, and the rest for exceeding the dimensions of the space and lack of documentation.

It should be noted that street operations continue in commercial plazas, establishments and swap meets in the nine delegations of the city, especially in the neighborhoods considered as red hot spots by the state health authorities, such as Maclovio Rojas, Horoscopo, Villa Residencial del Bosque, Villas del Prado, El Tecolote, Zona Río, Salvatierra, Altiplano, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Buenos Aires, Mediterraneo and Camino Verde-Grupo México.
