Last Friday, the Federal Ministry of Health reported that Guerrero would stay at orange traffic lights until January 3.

He asked citizens to wear mouth covers and respect the healthy distance.
He added that Zihuatanejo, Acapulco and Chilpancingo will be at yellow traffic lights due to stability in the number of contagions and for their tourist vocation. In these municipalities, hotel occupancy will be allowed to be 70% and not 50% as in the rest of the municipalities.
