After changing to the yellow traffic light and before the next massive event to be held in Rosarito, Baja Beach Fest, Baja California's Secretary of Health, Alonso Pérez Rico, was asked about the safety and health protocols to be followed, taking into account that the majority of the assistants tend to be Americans; a population of which many people do not want to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
Pérez Rico confirmed that derived from the fact that the attendees bought their ticket online, it is known that 95% of them are from the United States, of which 92% have proof of vaccination.
"This verification that they have been vaccinated is linked to a digital platform directly with the U.S. health service, where when you buy online it verifies whether or not you are vaccinated," said the secretary, who added that in addition, the bracelets of the attendees will have a "chip" that proves their immunization.
In case a person is not vaccinated, the health protocol for this event is that people must then show a negative test performed within the last 48 hours.
Pérez Rico also mentioned that in order to verify that the authorized protocol is being followed, not only will more than 40 verifiers from the Secretariat of Health (SSa) be present, but also the Secretariat of Sustainable Economy and Tourism (SEST).
Among the things that will be observed is that visitors who are not eating or drinking must wear masks, otherwise they will be asked to leave the event, which is specified when purchasing their tickets, stated the head of the SSa.
Baja Beach Fest starts this Friday, August 13th and will feature reggaeton and Latin music artists of international stature, during two weekends.
