The Government of Nuevo León ordered that all pantheons and pastry shops be closed next weekend, so that no one goes out to celebrate their mother and thus avoid the risk of COVID-19 contagion.
The Secretary of Health in Nuevo León, Manuel de la O Cavazos, noted that on Children’s Day the royals behaved very badly and went out to buy gifts and cakes, endangering their health, so they will not allow this next 10 to repeat something similar.

The official said that an agreement was reached for the municipalities to close their pantheons on Saturday and Sunday; while pastry shops will be forced.
«There shouldn’t be a mother’s day celebration, because we’ll probably bring the coronavirus to our mom as a gift, which can kill her and that’s going to be the gift we’re going to give her, instead of giving her flowers or a hug afterwards,» the Secretary of Health said.
«The pantheons are going to be closed May 9 and 10 and the activities that are triggered around the pantheons like flowers, food establishments, too, will not exist.»
De la O Cavazos abounded that just as the municipal presidents were in dialogue to implement the corresponding operation in the pantheons, talked to the owners of pastry shops.
«I apologized to all of them, the worse we’re going to close the pastry shops on May 9 and 10, I spoke to them, it’s not an essential food,» he said.
