Orange traffic light on CDMX
On November 20, the Mexico City government reported that the capital will remain at orange traffic light alert for increased hospitalizations by COVID, and announced new restriction measures for businesses and establishments.
The head of government, Claudia Sheinbaum, noted that from the following week all businesses will close again at 7 p.m., except self-service stores.
At a press conference he said the City is on the edge of the orange traffic light but that there is still time to reverse the increase in hospitalizations.
