The meaning of each color is as follows:
Red: the state is at the peak of activities or services that have been activated, will only be able to work at a capacity of 25%.
Yellow: the entity is at a high point of contagion and that although the activity continues to resume, this will be done gradually in order to avoid returning to red.
