Color of flags by municipality
According to the dynamics presented since May 30, the economic revival of the state of Michoacán would be watered under colored flags and these flags would indicate to society what activities could be carried out, in addition to informing what is the status of the municipality before the Coronavirus pandemic. The meaning of each color is as follows:
Red Flag: The status is at the maximum point of contagion and the activities that are carried out or the services that were activated, will only be able to work at a capacity of 25%.
Yellow flag: 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.
Green Flag: the risk of contagion is low, at this stage businesses and companies that can resume activities are expanded, but with the quota of a maximum of 75 percent of their capacity.
White Flag: the risk of contagion is controlled and will only be subject to constant monitoring through daily registration in modules that analiize respiratory diseases.
Until the 27th of dicembre no municipality has red or orange flag, 3 are in mooring flag: La Piedad, Morelia and Zitácuaro, 27 have green flag and the rest are white flag which is the level of lower risk of contagion and therefore indicates a greater economic reactivation.
Each municipality displays the color of the flag on which each michoacán ammunition is located according to the state indicator of Covid-19, which was issued by the Ministry of State Health on December 27. (Capture)
Rules for economic revival
Below we share the steps and rules that business sectors authorized to open their doors must follow and respect pear avoid being sanctioned with definitive closures:
Respecting health protocols in all sectors
Conduct health assessments to understand the conditions staff are in
Monitor the contagion curve (in the event of a new outbreak, activities will close again and return to confinement)
Responsibility on the part of Michoacans to comply with these rules, otherwise companies that do not abide by these rules of ‘New Coexistence’ will be closed
Silvano Aureoles, highlighted that even if the work begins to be reactivated, that does not mean that the disease does not exist or there is no longer a risk of contagion, on the contrary, I say that Michoacán is still immersed in the pandemic and that is why you should not let your guard down. He also clarified that if contagions begin to rebound as a result of economic reopening, the activities already allowed will be suspended again by falling once again into house isolation.How can I tell if I have coronavirus?
