In an interview, she commented that in November they had an influx of 15 percent, but for December they expect it to increase up to 30 percent, “the pandemic and the health recommendations are the causes for this percentage of visitors ”.
“It is clear that as the City Council we must reinforce and increase the verifications this December season by Municipal Health and Civil Protection among other areas related to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
